Multitudes of mourners thronged the home of late ANC stalwart Winnie Madikizela Mandela in Orlando West, Soweto on Wednesday. What stood out the most was the ANC Women’s League’s candle march. The women walked two from two historical landmarks: Hector Petersen Memorial Square and the Uncle Tom’s Hall.
Earlier in the day, former President Jacob Zuma visited the home and gave a tribute to Madikizela-Mandela. That afternoon, ANC Secretary General Ace Magashule also visited the house where he announced the party’s 10-day programme to commemorate the death of Madikizela Mandela.
MKVA members led by their Treasurer-General, Des Van Rooyen and President Kebby Maphatsoe also entered in a true military style.
