African leaders urged to emulate, sustain Winnie Mandela's legacies

African leaders urged to emulate, sustain Winnie Mandela's legacies

The African National Congress (ANC) has refused to be drawn into heightening debates involving late struggle stalwart Winnie Madikizela-Mandela.

Recalling a recent conversation with her daughter Zenani Dlamini, he said she cried when she said her mother had lived a hard life.

She said Madikizela-Mandela had made a choice to raise her own family and the larger family of South Africa as her contribution to the struggle, but had always reminded her children that they were the most important people in her life.

"Lies had became part of the narrative of her life". Give us a sign Mama", said Malema.Ramaphosa, who delivered the eulogy, not only acknowledged some of the accusations levelled by Malema against the ANC but also apologised for the party having failed to honour the iconic political activist and long-time party member while she was still alive."She bandaged our wounds.

"We will also, at the right time, address allegations that seek to cast aspersions on individual members of our movement and the role played by the apartheid security agents in fostering divisions within the ANC, but we say that this is not the time", Duarte said.

ANC's head of elections Fikile Mbalula said the women approached the ANC and the party advised them that it was not advisable now to speak about the allegations while the country was still mourning.

Madikizela-Mandela, 81, was the hero of the anti-apartheid struggle in South Africa and ex-wife of that country's first democratically elected president Nelson Mandela.

She slammed those who came out following Madikizela-Mandela's death about the apartheid regime's propaganda machine aimed at tarnishing the icon's name, specifically mentioning the former police commissioner George Fivaz."Why have they sat on the truth and waited until my mother's death to tell it?"

"The majority of the poor never stopped loving her", said Bishop Phalana, who was among thousands of South Africans, including Archbishop Buti Tlhagale of Johannesburg, at an April 11 memorial service in Soweto for Madikizela-Mandela.

"At the time that the NEC members from the ANCWL resigned there was no [court] judgment against comrade Winnie", she said.
