Johannesburg: The leadership of the African National Congress (ANC) is expected to accompany the body of a fallen struggle Stalwarts Winnie Madikizela-Mandela ahead of an official funeral services.
Winnie died last week on Monday at the Milpark Hospital shortly after a long battle with kidney failure.
The 81-year-old struggle icon had been in an out of hospital since the beginning of the year.
Following allegations of her involvement on the death of Stompie Seipei was a teenage activist for United Democratic Front (UDF) from Parys in Free State.
It is understood that he and three other boys were kidnapped on 29 December 1988 by members of Winnie Mandela’s bodyguards, known as the Mandela United Football Club.
Moeketsi was murdered on 1 January 1989, the only one of the boys to be killed.
In the meantime, leaders of political parties have lambasted these allegations, saying that Winnie Madikizela fought for constitutional democracy for all the people who were underprivileged conditions.
Winnie Madikizela-Mandela will be laid to rest at Fourways Memorial Park on Saturday.
Mandela was in jail with a meal everyday, fighting for long pants, while his young wife had to support his kids and liberate a whole country – dodging bullets. His multimillion estate excluded his ex wife. Her land in Qunu was also lost when when he cut matrimonial ties #Winnie pic.twitter.com/wn4j84MVWL

My parents will never forget how Inkatha attacked Katlehong and Vosloorus in 1994. Thokoza Khumalo street was a no go area. Mam Winnie supplied the residents of Katlehong and Vosloorus with weapons to defend themselves from the cruelty of Inkatha. #Winnie

Black people tonight is the perfect time to admit to ourselves:
White people defeated us in 1994
They still own our land
They still control politics through their economic power
They still own our souls: they dictate what time we start&finish work,eat lunch, get paid
