  • Malema lambastes 'crocodile tears' over Winnie Mandela

"We know her. We don't need (former police commissioner during Apartheid) George Fivaz to tell us about Winnie Mandela‚" Malema said, in apparent reference to a TV documentary broadcast this week which revealed that the police did everything in their power to tarnish her image, including allegations that she killed a young footballer named Stompie.

Duarte described Madikizela-Mandela as a caring mother who suffered more than anyone could have imagined when she was incarcerated and exiled by the apartheid regime.

Addressing scores of mourners at Mama Winnie's memorial service held at the Orlando Stadium in Soweto on 11 April, Duarte, the deputy secretary-general of the ANC, accused journalists of dishonesty. "They wanted to see her broken, with bowed head and lowered eyes, and weakened by soulful cries, but still she rose", he said as he delivered the eulogy for Madikizela-Mandela.

Police are reportedly investigating an alleged scuffle between Police VIP protection unit and EFF members Julius Malema and fellow Member of Parliament Mbuyiseni Ndlozi.

Before starting his speech, the EFF leader recognised South Africa's former presidents but excluded Jacob Zuma from his salutations during the funeral service, a sign that he was still bitter with Zuma's mistreatment of him that led to his dismissal from the ANC.

The ANC's current president Cyril Ramaphosa, who is also the country's president, the ANC Women's League, and the UDF were just some of those Malema targeted.

The party says it's important to remember the struggle icon's message. Their bond goes back to his days as the leader of the ANC Youth League.

Ermey's longtime manager announced the news via a tweet to Ermey's official Twitter account. He provided voices for characters in Disney Pixar's Toy Story and Spongebob Squarepants .


Turning to Madikizela-Mandela's remains in a casket placed in the middle of the stadium, Malema echoed the sentiment that has been trending - that the fallen struggle icon did not die but had multiplied instead.

"I will make a proposal to the ANC national executive committee to bestow on you its highest honour", Ramaphosa said to thunderous applause from the packed stadium, not far from Madikizela-Mandela's home in Orlando West.

He conceded that the ANC hasn't been there for her during the tumultuous times.

The president also told the mourners about the governing party's Top Six first encounter with Madikizela-Mandela's daughter, Zenani Mandela-Dlamini, following the confirmation of their mother's death at the Milpark Hospital in Joburg. "That statement and those tears have stayed with me since that day", Ramaphosa said.

"But she touched our wounds all the time". When we lost our loved ones, when people were in pain, overcome with anger, prone to violence, she came to touch our wounds.

"She bore witness to our suffering".
