Four Years Since The Death Of Winnie Madikizela-Mandela

Winnie Madikizela-Mandela, a hero of the struggle, died four years ago today. Family members and friends are attending a wreath-laying ceremony at the Fourways Memorial Park in honor of the late legend.

Mam’ Winnie died on April 2, 2018 in a Johannesburg hospital after a long illness. Panyaza Lesufi, Gauteng’s MEC for Education and the ANC’s Deputy Provincial Chairperson, was among those who attended the ceremony.

According to Lesufi, the late struggle idol should be remembered as a selfless struggle symbol who strived for social justice and equality for everyone.

The African National Congress (ANC) posted a series of photos from the wreath-laying ceremony on Twitter. Paul Mashatile, the ANC secretary-general, presided over the event.

EFF unveils new headquarters named after Winnie Madikizela-Mandela

On what would have been Winnie Madikizela-85th Mandela’s birthday, the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) honored her by dedicating the party’s headquarters in central Johannesburg after her.

Julius Malema, the party’s leader, made the momentous announcement on Sunday, September 26th, 2021, at Ghandi Square, where the party also unveiled its manifesto ahead of the local government elections.

Winnie Madikizela-Mandela House is the name of Malema’s new offices. The long-serving soldier died in 2018 – and the Red Berets’ headquarters isn’t the only place where she’ll be remembered. William Nicol, one of the province’s busiest roads, is already being renamed after Madikizela-Mandela by the City of Johannesburg.
