She also questioned why men in the struggle weren't subjected to the same scrutiny, and said, "double standards obscure the vast efforts of women" in the struggle.

As the pastors read out burial sermons, the Kupane Funeral Services groundsmen, clad in black suits and white gloves, performed a pre-burial ritual and then handed over a golden spade to the pall bearers.

"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". He lambasted people he called sell-outs who did not support her when she was alive but are speaking out during her funeral supporting her. "We know her. We don't need (former police commissioner during Apartheid) George Fivaz to tell us about Winnie Mandela‚" Malema said, in apparent reference to a TV documentary broadcast this week which revealed that the police did everything in their power to tarnish her image, including allegations that she killed a young footballer named Stompie.

Madikizela-Mandela's own daughters paid tribute to their mother, with ambassador HRH Zenani Dlamini defending the legacy of a "woman who dared one of the most evil and powerful regimes of the past century and triumphed".

The ANC government has confirmed that EFF president Julius Malema will speak alongside several other dignitaries at the funeral of struggle icon Winnie Madikizela-Mandela on Saturday.

"I am here not to bury Mama, because mothers don't die".

With full certainty, Julius Malema is an outspoken politician. "They just multiply into millions of red flowers of love", Malema said amid loud cheers. "Let us honour her memory by pledging here that we will not betray the trust of her people, we will not squander or steal their resources, and that we will serve them diligently and selflessly", Ramaphosa said.

Mama Winnie was laid to rest on Saturday.

Malema also said that Ramaphosa was Madikizela-Mandela's President and not Zuma, who had ignored her.
