Zindzi Mandela lashes ANC on Mama Winnie’s anniversary
Adopted from SowetanLive.co.za
Zindzi Mandela says the ANC has failed her mother Winnie Madikizela-Mandela’s legacy.
Speaking to Sowetan on the sidelines of the ceremony to commemorate the first anniversary of Madikizela-
Mandela’s death, Zindzi said the party had not done enough to honour her mother.
Her comments came two days after a picture of her and her sister Zenani posing with EFF chairperson Dali Mpofu, and sharing an EFF cap, led to speculation that the sisters had dumped the ANC.
However, at the Fourways Memorial Park Cemetery yesterday, Zenani arrived draped in ANC regalia and later posted pictures on social media in ANC attire and doing the Amandla salute. It was, however, curious that at the cemetery, no recognisable ANC leader was present and yet the EFF was represented by its leader Julius Malema.
Speaking to Sowetan, Zindzi said: “I think the ANC needs to do more and as she said, ‘I am the ANC’, she is the ANC and so the only way to uphold her legacy is to live true to her values.”
She added that Madikizela-Mandela “always spoke truth to power and she always believed in corrective measures, had specific solutions and she was always very frank to her party when she saw things going wrong”.
