A dark cloud of sadness fell on South Africa as news broke of Mam’ Winnie Mandela’s passing.
A Mother to the Nation, stalwart and warrior are words that best describe the woman who fought against the injustices of the past.
A few of her famous quotes are listed here:
“I will not allow the selfless efforts of my husband and his friends to be abandoned,” she said after Nelson was imprisoned. “I will continue the struggle for a free and equal South Africa.”
“I no longer have the emotion of fear, there is no longer anything I can fear,” she said after being repeatedly sent to prison. “There is nothing the government has not done to me. There isn’t any pain I haven’t known.”
“They think because they have put my husband on an island that he will be forgotten,” Madikizela-Mandela said when her husband was sent to Robben Island, according to Business Insider South Africa. “They are wrong. The harder they try to silence him, the louder I will become.”
You can finally rest in peace Nomzamo Zanyiwe Winifred Madikizela-Mandela. You were a martyr and matriarch, token of freedom and leader in South Africa’s liberation. We will never forget your sacrifices for the country.
We are because you were.
