Government expresses gratitude toward South Africans for taking part in the official memorial service at the Orlando Stadium, Soweto in recalling and praising the life of struggle stalwart Winnie Madikizela-Mandela.

In a statement on Wednesday, Acting Government Communication and Information System Director-General Phumla Williams said the decorum shown during the memorial service and the dynamic way in which Mama Winnie Madikzela-Mandela was respected is a genuine impression of the adoration for the “Mother of our Nation”.

The memorial service was broadcast live over all TV and radio stations, including group radio, allowing South Africans in all aspects of the nation to join the festival of her life.

“Today we respected in blissful festival the life of the mother of our country. In paying tribute to Mama Winnie, South Africans showed the genuine soul of Ubuntu which is the core of our vote based system,” said Williams.

Willaims said the nation owes Mama Winnie an extraordinary obligation of appreciation for the part she played in the struggle for freedom and for the many penances she had made so all South Africans appreciate the valuable flexibility we have today.

The time of grieving proclaimed by President Cyril Ramaphosa proceeds until 14 April 2018 when Mama Winnie will be laid to rest at Fourways  Memorial Park in Johannesburg in a Special Official Funeral that will also be held at Orlando Stadium.

She said the books of sympathy will stay open, broadly and at our political missions.
