During the recording of her live album and DVD, The Simphiwe Dana Symphony Experience (2017), South African singer Simphiwe Dana performed a song she had written for the late apartheid struggle hero Winnie Madikizela-Mandela.
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.
Well-known journalist Thandeka Gqubule, who has been accused of being part of the Apartheid regime's Strategic Communications (Stratcom), says she will be approaching the courts to declassify documents linked to the covert operation.
This comes after Economic Freedom Fighter (EFF) leader Julius Malema mentioned at Madikizela-Mandela's funeral on Saturday that some in the ANCWL were among those who "sold out" and turned their backs on her when she was still president, sighting not wanting to be led "by a criminal" as their motivation.
She died at the age of 81.
"I also, not me alone, but Namibian people also named a street in her honour", he said at the service. "It is so disappointing to see how they withheld their words during my mother's lifetime, knowing very well what they would have meant to her", said Mandela-Dlamini.
According to the press secretary, Dr Alfredo Hengari, Madikizela-Mandela was bestowed with the most brilliant order of the Sun first class in 2015 on August 26 at the Heroes Acre.
The opening lines of "Nokunyamezela" go, "Wabuya etilongweni, wabuya wangena kwenye", which translates to that Mama Winnie left prison only to get into another prison.
Geingob further said Madikizela-Mandela leaves behind a legacy of sacrifice, dedication and commitment. Her legacy is established and firmly rooted among our people. I stand here to celebrate her life.
