Mourners at the funeral of Madikizela-Mandela have expressed their gratitude at being able to participate in her final send off at Orlando Stadium in Soweto.
Earlier today, an emotional funeral service for Mamma Winnie lasting almost six hours was held at Orlando Stadium in Soweto.
Young and old spoke of the unity that has been exhibited by political parties across the board and what they have learnt from the struggle icon.
The hearse carrying Madikizela-Mandela’s body was moved through Soweto to allow residents a last chance to say their farewells.
Earlier, delivering the eulogy for Mama Winnie, President Cyril Ramaphosa announced that the ANC’s highest honour would be bestowed on her.
“The ANC should award you the highest order of our movement and bestow on you ISITHWALANDWE because indeed you are one of those leaders who richly deserve to be awarded SEAPARANKWE/ ISITHWALANDWE. You have run your race mama your for-bearers await you. UMadiba is waiting to receive you, mama Albertina Sisulu, and many others are waiting to welcome you.”
