Zenani Mandela lambasts media for "peddling lies" about Winnie

"And to those of you who vilified my mother through books, on speeches, and on social media, don't even think for a minute that we have forgotten".

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. "Praising my mother now that she is gone shows [what] hypocrites you are".

She also questioned why men in the struggle weren't subjected to the same scrutiny, and said, "double standards obscure the vast efforts of women" in the struggle.

Speaking at a press conference this morning called by ANC veteran Sydney Mufamadi in the wake of damning allegations made against him in award-winning documentary Winnie, based on the life of late struggle icon Winnie Madikizela-Mandela, Gqubule asked Mufamadi if he had ever heard or seen that she or her colleagues at the then Weekly Mail were Stratcom spies. I was grateful, but a part of me also knew that the chances of her not attending were quite high, given her frail health.

"14 April 2018 marked a new era that will be regarded as the post-Winnie Mandela era in our country".

Inflation dips to 2.47 per cent in March

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".

"In the face of danger they sacrificed..."

For someone whose truth I knew so little about‚ Mama Winnie Madikizela-Mandela's death has evoked a sense of "wokeness" in me that I never knew existed.

"She combined rare multiple roles of a woman: a mother, grandmother, freedom fighter, party organiser and a parliamentarian among others".
