Today we remember Mama #WinnieMadikizelaMandela who travelled a very long road with Madiba & was a member of a generation of leaders who survived the most brutal period of state terror during apartheid. She was also a friend of the NMF. You will always be remembered Mangutyana pic.twitter.com/hqB4bTNv1e
