Zenani Mandela lambasts media for "peddling lies" about Winnie

Zenani Mandela lambasts media for

"Mama, the widows of Marikana are still in tears".

The EFF leader, who once described Madikizela-Mandela as the " brick the builders rejected", berated the liberation movement for not allowing the struggle hero to speak when then president of the ANC youth league, Peter Mokaba, died.

"I'm sorry Mama that your organisation delayed in according you its honour", Ramaphosa said.

"What must I tell them?" What do we do with them?

She said Madikizela-Mandela had made a choice to raise her own family and the larger family of South Africa as her contribution to the struggle, but had always reminded her children that they were the most important people in her life.

He said she wanted the ANC to honour the commitment that is set in the Freedom Charter " that the people should share in the country's wealth and that yes, the land should be shared amongst those who work it and yes that it should be returned and expropriated for the benefit of our people as a whole". "We did not do the same for her", Ramaphosa said.

"And to those of you who vilified my mother through books, on speeches, and on social media, don't even think for a minute that we have forgotten".

Mbeki was booed at the stadium for his public and undiplomatic shove against Madikizela-Mandela when she tried to kiss him on the cheek after a late arrival at a party meeting when he was in power some years ago.

He said he had a conversation with her shortly before her death about her worries and her wishes.

"The mother of the nation has left a legacy that we should carry forward to honour her", she said, adding that Winnie had lived her life to the "fullest".

"Lies had became part of the narrative of her life. Praising my mother now that she is gone shows [what] hypocrites you are".
