Zenani, who struggled to hold back tears while speaking at Madikizela-Mandela's funeral at the Orlando Stadium in Soweto, Johannesburg, lambasted the media for "peddling lies" about her mother and her contribution to the struggle, and only tell the truth when she was dead.

The Sowetan Online reported that the EFF leader told the officer "no white man can stop me" during the altercation, before he was eventually granted entry. What do we do with them?

"Mama‚ those who sold you out to the regime are here".

Ms Zukiswa Madikizela paid tribute by calling on all black South African women to carry forward the struggle icon's legacy.

He said he had a conversation with her shortly before her death about her worries and her wishes.

"As we enter the era of intensified struggles for economic emancipation, we are inspired by Mama Winnie Madikizela-Mandela who not only embodied the ideals of economic justice for all, but also fought with uncompromising resilience for the aspirations of the downtrodden masses of our people".

Mbeki was booed at the stadium for his public and undiplomatic shove against Madikizela-Mandela when she tried to kiss him on the cheek after a late arrival at a party meeting when he was in power some years ago. "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. The funeral ceremony united the nation as people from various political divides celebrated her life. "Praising my mother now that she is gone shows [what] hypocrites you are".

She also questioned why men in the struggle weren't subjected to the same scrutiny, and said, "double standards obscure the vast efforts of women" in the struggle.

"Just as Mam' Winnie has united us in sorrow, let us honour her memory by uniting in common objective".
