I'm here to pick up Mama Winnie's spear, says Malema”

"Today women do not have their own history and struggle credentials".

She said women are either referred to as someone's wife or as someone's ex-wife.

"I am here Mama to express my condolences to your biological children whom I know, and the rest of Madikizela and Mandela family".

British model Naomi Campbell pays tribute at the funeral of struggle icon Winnie Madikizela-Mandela.

"uMama Winnie was a true icon". "They are crying the loudest more than all of us who cared for you‚" he said addressing the late icon.

"We will never stop calling for a woman president until we have a woman president!" she said.

He called on the people of Soweto‚ where she lived until her death‚ never to forget Madikizela-Mandela.

After her speech, Sipho "Hotstix" Mabuse performed, and then ANC national chairperson Gwede Mantashe took to the podium, even though he wasn't on the initial programme released on Friday.

Monareng said EFF members felt betrayed by the ANC and that it was appropriate to leave the funeral.

"It's for mourning", he said.

"We are sending off a friend of the working class".

"Comrade Winnie's spirit must continue to be omnipresent".

Dlamini reminisced about Madikizela-Mandela's struggle.

In her life and death, Mam' Winnie Mandela has been the face of struggle as a woman involved in politics.

Dlamini has remembered the mother of the nation for going out of her way to protect poor South Africans. "She was the eyes and ears of the world during those dark days", she said.

Malema was overshadowed momentarily by a frenzy of booing, when he said that those who sold her out to the apartheid regime were present at the stadium.

"You fought for what you believed was right, possessed only by your love for our people and the restoration of their dignity".

He added that while Mam Winnie was a part of the ANC, she identified with a lot of EFF principles and supported members of the EFF by attending its conferences.

Namibian president Hage Geingob greeted the mourners with a cry of "Amandla!".

Ramaphosa said that when Madikizela-Mandela was banished to the small town of Brandfort in the Free State, she "emerged from these torments emboldened, driven by a burning desire to give voice to the aspirations of her people".

"She remains our conscience".
