The ANC Women’s League called her the “epitome of the struggle against inequalities, unemployment and poverty”. We know one thing, Winnie Madikizela-Mandela was influential, controversial, and iconic. Even through the toxic culture of South African apartheid, she was not afraid of any fight if it was a fight for the people. And at the end of the day, whether or not you agree with her movement, few would question her business acumen.

She served as a Member of Parliament from 1994 to 2003, and again from 2009 until her death, and was a deputy minister of arts and culture from 1994 to 1996. A member of the African National Congress (ANC) political party, she served on the ANC's National Executive Committee and headed its Women's League. Salute!!
