Motorists have been warned to avoid several routes around noon in Johannesburg amid mama Winnie’s funeral procession.

A heavy motorcade is expected to leave Soweto around midday to lay the struggle stalwart in her final resting place in Fourways, north of Johannesburg.

Johannesburg Metro Police Spokesperson, Wayne Minnaar says: “At approximately midday the funeral procession will leave Orlando stadium. It will proceed onto the N17, then go onto the N1 north as far as William Nicole.”

“They’ll go into Witkoppen, then right into Cedar road.”

From there the funeral procession will take a private route to the Fourways Memorial Park.
