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

Winnie who was referred to as the anti-apartheid icon was honored at Orlando stadium in Soweto, South Africa. Mandela accused her of infidelity, and they divorced in 1996, two years after he was elected the first black president of South Africa.

The name Winnie Madikizela-Mandela echoed through the stadium as struggle songs were being sung.

She said: "It is only when all black groups, join hands and speak with one voice that we shall be a bargaining force which will decide its own destiny". Mandela fired her as one of his deputy ministers and her stints as a lawmaker, a post she held until her death, were lackluster.

"In a way we feel orphaned but their legacy lives on", said the gym worker who had taken time off to visit Winnie Mandela's home.

"I'm here at the stadium to lay my mother to rest".

Israel says US-led strikes have enforced Syria red line
There is no doubt in the worldwide community's conscience on this matter. "Base Incirlik was not involved in the strike". Turkish President Recep Erdogan has warned against further escalation in Syria in a phone talk with UK PM Theresa May.

"However, we are happy that after her death truth has been coming out one by one, ' she added".

"Mama Winnie taught us respect - to respect our neighbours and love your neighbours as you love yourself". "Betrayers, we see you". Malema said she asked him to return to the ANC but he responded, "But which ANC do we go to?"

In his eulogy, Ramaphosa called Madikizela-Mandela proud, strong, courageous and articulate.

"I want to say to her: 'You are mama, I am mama Africa". He said he would request the ANC to confer its highest honour on her.

"Perhaps this is not something we immediately think of, when we pay tribute to Winnie Madikizela-Mandela. I should surpass her", Seabe said.

For those who have wondered, let me assure you that even at the height of her activism, my mother always found a way to let me and my sister know that we were the most special people in her life. "Zenani's tears revealed Mama Winnie's wounds". She is my inspiration. "It was a life of compassion", said the president. With her strength and courage she redefined the struggle. She believed it was her calling to defend and protect both from the constant assaults by the apartheid State. "She exposed the lie of apartheid".

US Refuses UK Involvement in Syria Chemical Attack
May has indicated she wants Britain to join in any US -led strikes in response to the attack in Douma. Britain's Parliament is in recess until Monday, though it could be recalled for an emergency debate.

"She never stopped fighting".

"It was hard as there was tear gas and we faced being arrested because the police said nobody except the family would attend the funeral".

Following Makhura was a friend of Madikizela-Mandela only identified as Mrs Mokgobo.

Member of the leftist party, the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF), also attended in large numbers.

ANC politicians such as Gwede Mantashe, David Makhura, Bathabile Dlamini and Jeff Radebe also addressed the funeral that included performances by Thandiswa Mazwai, Zonke and Sipho "Hotstix" Mabuse.

Low mortgage rates not impressing potential new home buyers
One of the problems is that once rates reach rock bottom (which is pretty well where they are right now) the only way is up. This could be a good time for more young Americans to take out a Roth Individual Retirement Account or IRA for short.
