Ramaphosa vows to go visit Marikana widows at Madikizela-Mandela's funeral

Ramaphosa vows to go visit Marikana widows at Madikizela-Mandela's funeral

"Let us honour her memory by pledging here that we will not betray the trust of her people, we will not squander or steal their resources, and that we will serve them diligently and selflessly", Ramaphosa said.

Malema and leaders of other political parties have also been allowed to be part of the dignitaries to bid their final farewell to the struggle icon at the cemetery. He continued: "You [Mama Winnie] trusted that your mission of putting the country first was embraced by an organization you loved but Mama you did not know that your organization had been rendered incapable of loving you back". The labour leader urged trade unionists especially female unionists in Africa to "learn from the leadership example of Mama Winnie Madikizela Mandela", adding that as a stateswoman, "she was labour friendly, a working class stalwart who favoured minimum wage and decent work for the workers". What do I tell them; what about those who killed their husbands for selfish gains? What must we tell them?

There will be plenty of time within the next few days to think about the political impact of the state funeral of Winnie Madikizela-Mandela ... and about those who saw it as an opportunity to score points over their opponents, or to burnish their own images. "Give us a sign Mama", said Malema. He lambasted people he called sell-outs who did not support her when she was alive but are speaking out during her funeral supporting her. "She was just an ordinary woman, one of us, but dared to fight for what is right", Zondwa said.




Winnie-Madikizela Mandela must be surely be proud of Julius Malema seeing him spilling the truth as it is.

"The pain inflicted on her lives on in us". "The UDF cabal that distanced itself from you is here crying crocodile tears after disowning you at a critical moment hoping the regime will finish you off".

He mentioned the United Democratic Front distancing itself from Madikizela-Mandela over the killing of teenager Stompie Seipei, the ANC Women's League national executive committee members who resigned en-masse after the struggle hero was convicted of fraud and theft, saying that they claimed they could not be led by a criminal.
