Mama Winnie spoke truth to power - David Makhura
Gauteng Premier David Makhura says Winnie Madikizela-Mandela 'was not a saint like others in the liberation struggle' and that she like many, had her own flaws.
Madikizela-Mandela died on Easter Monday at the Millpark Hospital after a long illness at the age of 81.
Makhura remembers Mama Winnie as someone who was fearless and spoke truth to power.
She always spoke her mind and she identified and echoed the aspirations, fears and frustrations of the ordinary man and woman on the streets and that is why she was loved so dearly.David Makhura, Gauteng premier
