Anti-Apartheid campaigner and former First Lady of South Africa Winnie Madikizela-Mandela have died at the age of 81.
Winnie and her late Husband Nelson Mandela fought for the country’s anti-apartheid struggle which lasted for three decades.
Her reputation in her latter days, however, became tainted legally and politically.
Crowds of mourners and political figures flocked to her home in Soweto, in Johannesburg, after the news of her demise broke.
Family spokesman Victor Dlamini confirmed earlier on Monday that Mrs Mandela “succumbed peacefully in the early hours of Monday afternoon surrounded by her family and loved ones” following a long illness, which had seen her go in and out of the hospital since the start of the year.
