Winnie Madikizela-Mandela, the anti-apartheid campaigner, will be honoured with a state Funeral later this month, South Africa’s president has said.
Cyril Ramaphosa made the announcement on Monday evening after paying a condolence visit to Madikizela-Mandela’s home in Johannesburg’s Soweto township.
The funeral will be on 14 April, with an official memorial service three days earlier.
Known as Mama Winnie, and “mother of the nation”, the former wife of Nelson Mandela died on Monday aged 81 following a “long illness”, her family said.
