Laughter, tears at send-off for Mama Winnie

South Africa: A Reflection - Searching for Winnie's Legacy

Winnie Madikizela-Mandela's memorial service was a celebration and not a mourning.

The Department of Arts and Culture in partnership with the Joburg Theatre honoured fallen stalwart, Winnie Madikizela-Mandela on 12 April.

Machel spoke after consoling an emotional Ndileka Mandela who struggled through her speech. From the witness of her life, we knew we could stand tall; we knew also we could falter and stumble.

"I live in Soweto; I [moved] here 10 years ago - obviously not knowing lot about the liberation struggle, but I have learnt and seen with my own eyes in the very neighbourhood that I live - she has been part of change for so many people", she said. South Africa paid tribute to Winnie Mandela's fighting spirit on Tuesday as plans were made to celebrate the life of the firebrand anti-apartheid campaigner. "By the pain she took‚ we are healed‚" said Jackson.

Mrs Madikizela-Mandela states that the work of these journalists contributed to her being undermined and vilified.

In the week since her death in a Johannesburg hospital, there has been a surge of support for the woman whose fearlessness and defiance helped bring end to apartheid but whose public image was tarnished by controversy.

Heartfelt tributes were delivered by family and friends, who commended Mam' Winnie for her motherly attributes.

Mourners, many clad in the green and yellow colours of the ruling African National Congress (ANC), danced and sang in a soccer stadium under gray skies.

Her activism and resistance to white minority rule, known as apartheid landed her in jail on numerous occasions. Alex artist, Refiloe Pieterse and Ausi Nkepile, a former personal assistant to another late icon, Albertina Sisulu, had with them a banner depicting the remembrance of 16 June struggle solidarity between Alex and Soweto, which is promoted by the Alexandra June 16/18 Development Association.

"We all complain about things, but Ma Winnie showed us that we must look at how we can make a difference in the world", she told the publication.
