'Winnie stuck it out when things got tough'- Mashatile
African National Congress treasurer general Paul Mashatile hails struggle stalwart Winnie Madikizela-Mandela as a courageous and brave woman.
Madikizela-Mandela passed away at Milpark Hospital on Monday April 3 at the age of 81.
Mashatile says she was a fearless and defiant character.
Comrade Winnie would not shy away from criticising where things are wrong and that's really what made her.Paul Mashatile, ANC treasurer general
We always believed in her judgement and when things were tough; she would always be there.Paul Mashatile, ANC treasurer general
Mashatile says Madikizela-Mandela had attended the 54th ANC National Conference and spent hours with senior party members afterwards.
She was very happy; she was looking forward to seeing us renew the movement. Hers was a life of dedication to the struggle and to the betterment of our people and indeed we have seen that she did so to the very end.Paul Mashatile, ANC treasurer general
Meanwhile, retired human rights lawyer Priscilla Jana has described Mrs Madikizela-Mandela as a heroine in her own right.
She was one of South Africa's greatest heroines. During the political times in the 60s, Winnie WAS the ANC. She was fearless; she was determined; and she was a passionate supporter of the ANC and she kept the name of the ANC alive for many many years.Priscilla Jana, SAHRC Deputy Chairperson
Madikizela-Mandela will be laid to rest on the 14 of April in Orlando, Soweto.
