Celebrities Mourns The Passing of Freedom Fighter Winnie Mandela

There's a hint of a smile on her face.

She met lawyer and anti-apartheid activist Nelson Mandela in 1957 and they were married a year later. "She was not only an inspiration‚ but she also touched the lives of many millions of South Africans during the dark days of apartheid‚" he said.

At that point, the two separated and it wasn't long before Mandela sacked Winnie from his cabinet and filed for divorce.

After Nelson's release, it was revealed that his wife was involved in legal and political troubles, including her controversial Mandela Football Club (MUFC) enforcers who were blamed for the killing of activist Stompie Seipei. "We are saddened by her passing but deeply grateful for the contributions she made in her lifetime".

"I didn't know how hard the path was going to be that was lying ahead of me".

Mourners gather outside Winnie Mandela's house.

Winnie Madikizela-Mandela was the former wife of South Africa's first black president, Nelson Mandela.

Monch wrote, "Winnie Mandela".

They had two children together, Zindzi Mandela-Hlongwane (born 1958) and Zenani Mandela-Dlamini (born 1960). And she also grew more isolated from the party during Jacob Zuma's tenure. Her death has left the entire country in mourning.

The couple also participated in a Commonwealth Quiz, testing their knowledge of the Commonwealth Games while on opposing teams. Wills was able to sink a shot, much to the delight of the other players and to Kate , who proudly stood by his side.


"I started to realise the abject poverty under which most people were forced to live, the appalling conditions created by the inequalities of the system", she said. She bore the air of a troublemaker, arriving late at rallies and haranguing comrades, including Thabo Mbeki, Mandela's successor as president.

She "will forever be remembered as a global icon, a fearless campaigner who sacrificed much of her life for freedom in South Africa and for women everywhere", he said on Twitter. CNN reports that Madikizela-Mandela, an outspoken member of the African National Congress political party, "was a member of South Africa's parliament at the time of her death".

She served our nation with distinction.

Moeketsi, who was accused being an informer, was murdered by her bodyguards in 1989.

Some have even claimed Mandikizela-Mandela killed the boy herself.

When the truth and reconciliation commission got under way after a peaceful transition in South Africa, Mandela openly criticised the process as incapable of bringing true reconciliation.

Winnie Madikizela-Mandela has died at the age of 81. Mandela died aged 95 in 2013. "It was the best marriage I ever had", she often said.

In 1996, Mandela ended their 38-year marriage, testifying in court that his wife was having an affair with a colleague. "I last saw her last month at voter registration", she said, standing beside Winnie Mandela's neat lawn, manicured trees and an ANC banner fluttering above her home. Her dedication to the plight of her people gained her the love and the respect of the nation.
