It’s a sad day today with us laying to rest Winnie Madikizela-Mandela.
It was a huge funeral procession, which almost worthy to the individual.
Someone praised so much in death but wasn’t a celebrated in life.
But such is the way of the world.
One could go as far as saying that she kept former president Nelson’s name alive during his 27 year incarceration.
Keeping him relevant, inspiring artist’s like the late Brenda Fassie to sing songs about him.
At time that when the streets where on fire.
The aftermath being relived in the minds of our parents and grandparents.
Influencing how we are raised.
In this “democratic” Republic.
May her soul rest in peace.
