A statement released by the foundation following her death read, "Mama Winnie Madikizela-Mandela's passing away is a hard blow for the foundation".

"...[she] led a bitter and dedicated struggle against the brutal Apartheid regime in South Africa, holding fort when her then husband Nelson Mandela was in detention", he said.

Mourners have gathered at the memorial service for anti-Apartheid campaigner Madikizela-Mandela who died last week.

"She could have just been a quiet mother with two children".

"I live in Soweto; I [moved] here 10 years ago - obviously not knowing lot about the liberation struggle, but I have learnt and seen with my own eyes in the very neighbourhood that I live - she has been part of change for so many people", she said. "Her cry was our cry and in 2018 we can say we did triumph".

The hearse carrying the body of the late Winnie Madikizela-Mandela (pictured left) arrived at her home yesterday evening.

"We will miss her and our country will miss her. Hamba kahle [go well], Mama".

Tony Yengeni, ANC national executive committee member, was also at the ANC Women's League memorial service on Thursday.

Glamorous and tough, she played a high-profile role in the battle to end repressive white-minority rule.

ANC deputy secretary general Jessie Duarte told critics of Winnie Mandela to "sit down and shut up" during her speech to the crowd.

After her death was announced, President Ramaphosa described her as "a voice of defiance and resistance" who "was an abiding symbol of the desire of our people to be free".

In 1990 the world watched when Nelson Mandela finally walked free from prison - hand-in-hand with Winnie.

In a tribute to Madikizela-Mandela, the foundation released an additional statement documenting Madikizela-Mandela's life.

A video clip is circulating of the late struggle icon in which she mentions particular journalists of "doing the work of" the Apartheid security establishment including STRATCOM.
