"I'm here to look at your grandchildren in the eyes and tell them that they will never be treated like they've got leprosy for as long as I'm still alive", Malema said to yet more loud cheers.

"Mama, the widows of Marikana are still in tears". What do we do with them? "Give us a sign Mama".

Inter-Ministerial Committee spokesperson, Phumla Williams, confirmed that Malema will be among the speakers, who will be delivering tributes to Madikizela-Mandela, during the funeral service. The labour leader urged trade unionists especially female unionists in Africa to "learn from the leadership example of Mama Winnie Madikizela Mandela", adding that as a stateswoman, "she was labour friendly, a working class stalwart who favoured minimum wage and decent work for the workers". Winnie's legacy became warped simply because certain people saw it right to neglect her and completely abandon the duty to protect her inspiring legacy. "We did not do the same for her", Ramaphosa said.

Malema, who sat with Madikizela-Mandela's family and other dignitaries, responded to Ramaphosa with a smile.
