Madikizela-Mandela: Mama Winnie should have been president, not Zuma - Malema

Madikizela-Mandela: Mama Winnie should have been president, not Zuma - Malema

She was a fearless, radical and fiery orator whose words stirred deep and intense emotions that galvanised activists to take their fight against the brutal apartheid government. "She has been detained, tortured, exiled. but she stood". The march will be peaceful as it is only aimed at defending RET. Zuma's prosecution has nothing to do with him personally but is aimed at ensuring that RET is not implemented, " said Khomo.

Zuma visited the house of Madikizela-Mandela in Orlando West, Soweto on Wednesday to pay his respects. "This is a national hero. We must allow ourselves to cry at times", she said. She represented that type of citizen in our country. He also declared national days of mourning from Tuesday until her burial.

"Winnie Mandela, the president we did not have who was denied to be a president on the basis that she is a female, an African...because they feared her even today they still fear in death", Malema said.

"I couldn't believe it. It had become nearly a comforting thing that whenever she went, going for a check-up, she would come back". He said Madikizela-Mandela was his pillar of strength, adding that he had received abundant support from her when he and other ANC Youth League leaders were expelled from the party.

"Not just because she was a wife of our leader, our icon, Nelson Mandela, but because in her own name and right, she made a contribution to our struggle".

Zuma said Mama Winnie influenced many oppressed people to fight for freedom.

He lashed out at those who were critical of some of her conduct‚ saying: "As a nation we have failed to defend her while she was still alive‚ I plead with the nation that we defend her now‚ so that we may always remember as the Mother of the Nation". You can also follows us Instagram. You join in and fight. She was an umXhosa woman. But her bravery to face the enemy was something beyond understanding as a woman. "We were very young when she was convicted, but we were there", Malema said, adding that they "learned the ABC of politics in this house". She could not be confused by anything.

"There are many who joined the struggle because they saw her fighting with her husband in prison, not knowing when he will come out", he continued. So, we have lost a leader and a mother.

But despite her flaws and missteps -which senior ANC official, Tokyo Sexwale, said were never committed for personal gain but were part of the broader of the liberation struggle - all concur that no one suffered as much as she did.
