Earlier, Malema's speech opened up all wounds when he directly addressed the fallen hero and said, "Mama, there are sell-outs here". Ramaphosa said, "We must continue to touch Mama's wounds, acknowledge her huge pain and torment, and pass on the stories of her suffering to future generations so that it may always be known that Winnie Madikizela-Mandela was a giant, a pathfinder, a soldier, a healer, a champion of people's struggles and forever the Mother of the Nation".
He says the detention, torture and years of banishment that Madikizela-Mandela endured "emboldened" her as a political activist, but also inflicted "deep wounds" that never healed and went largely ignored by many peers.

"She bandaged our wounds. As we continue to touch her wounds, we must be courageous enough to share her life and legacy across our society and with the people she loved", he said.

"Till death, you knew who your enemy was: racial domination, class exploitation, gender oppression". "As president, I will propose that we award you the highest order of our movement, you richly deserve to be awarded", Mr Ramaphosa said.
"I am here Mama to express my condolences to your biological children whom I know, and the rest of Madikizela and Mandela family".
He said they are from a generation that is fortunate to have lived in the time of Madikizela-Mandela.
At the funeral, EFF leader Julius Malema took a swipe at the ANC and its former internal wing, the United Democratic Front, which he said dissociated itself from her during the apartheid era.

"Mama Winnie and her spirit must be with us all the time". She said, Zenani added, "My mother's life was a remarkable one". It was those in power who, insecure and fearful, visited upon her the most vindictive and callous retribution.
