"Betrayers, sell outs, we see you!" - Malema unleashes at Winnie Mandela funeral

Culture shock for Brazilian photographer attending Winnie Madikizela-Mandela's memorial

Because she was always so strong.

The 59-year old told mourners that the government and the media had smeared lies against her mother through extreme cruelty that robbed her rightful legacy. The crowd, which included former presidents Jacob Zuma, Kgalema Motlanthe and Thabo Mbeki, roared in approval.

British model Naomi Campbell pays tribute at the funeral of struggle icon Winnie Madikizela-Mandela, at the Orlando Stadium in Soweto, South Africa, Saturday, April 14, 2018.

"In apartheid South Africa, the combination of patriarchy and racism together meant that black women confronted enormous obstacles from the cradle to the grave - making her own achievements all the more exceptional", he said at a memorial in NY on Friday, not mentioning Nelson Mandela at all.

Mrs Madikizela-Mandela was a social worker when she met her future husband, then a prominent anti-apartheid campaigner, in the 1950s. Her supporters have continued to correct claims that she was responsible for the 1989 death of Stompie Seipei.

She would find her way to the limelight again in 1996 following her divorce that marked the end of her 38 year old union with Nelson Mandela. "What must we tell them", Malema asked, saying they were promised a quiet visit. "She taught us not to be limited in our thoughts", said Campbell.

Olivier Giroud brace seals Chelsea comeback at Southampton
The comeback was completed by Conte's men with a clinical finish by Giroud off a short free-kick in the final 10 minutes. Southampton stayed in the relegation zone with five games left.

Ramaphosa said during the dark days of the struggle against apartheid, Madikizela-Mandela felt compelled to pick up the spear where it had fallen.

Member of the leftist party, the Economic Freedom Fighters also attended in large numbers. This reached a crescendo as the procession, led by police motorcycles, arrived. We see you in your handsome suits!

"Some of those who sold you out to the regime are here".

Praising her now that she's gone shows what hypocrites you are.

Ramaphosa said he would propose to the ANC's national executive committee that Madikizela-Mandela be given the ANC's highest honour of Isitwalandwe/Seaparankwe, which is given to those who have made an outstanding contribution and sacrifice to the liberation struggle.

"I'm sorry mama that your organisation delayed you in according you its honour". When we were with her, she did not even have to say anything: her love for us was written on her face.

Erdo─čan calls US-led strikes on Syria 'appropriate'
Ankara backs rebel forces seeking Assad's ouster while Moscow remains a major ally of the regime in Damascus. Erdogan said that " the innocent Syrian people should have been defended long ago ".

She struggled with a cough through the first part of her speech, with her daughter Swati Dlamini-Mandela, who also delivered Madikizela-Mandela's obituary, taking over and reading the first few paragraphs in which Mandela expressed her gratitude to the outpouring of commiserations the family received.

"Mama, the widows of Marikana are still in tears. She was a true inspiration to all". "It was a life of compassion", said the president.

ANC Women's League President Bathabile Dlamini used her speech to call on government to honour Madikizela-Mandela by declaring a day dedicated to her. From the rising generation, which is too young to have been around when my mother took on the Apartheid State, to those who hail from the African Diaspora, we have been reminded of how she touched so many, in ways that are so deeply personal.

For years, she was routinely harassed by apartheid-state security forces, imprisoned and tortured.

Responding to Malema, the president said, "The wounds you are talking about are real wounds but today is the time to heal those wounds".

Her anger was echoed by Madikizela-Mandela's adopted political son, Julius Malema.
