African National Congress (ANC) National Executive Committee (NEC) member Siyabonga Cwele says the party will forever be indebted to the late struggle icon Winnie Madikizela-Mandela.

Cwele was speaking at the official memorial service of Madikizela-Mandela in Majwemasweu Township in Brandfort in the Free State.

The service was held near the house to which the struggle icon and her youngest daughter Zindzi were banished for almost nine years.

Cwele says Madikizela-Mandela will forever be missed.

“As we dip all banners and pay tribute, we must draw inspiration and sacrifice she made. Let us close ranks and unite to expedite the problem of freedom so that we take our people out of poverty, unemployment and oppression. Let us unite to ensure that land is dispossessed to majority is returned to oppressed and dispossessed to the majority.”
