Photos Of Mourners Placing Candles And Flowers At The Home Of The Late Winnie Mandela

Many mourners have been pictured laying flowers and lit candles outside the home of Winnie Madikizela-Mandela, the South African anti-apartheid activist and ex-wife of Nelson Mandela who died this week after a long illness.

According to Yahoo News, ruling party politicians and women’s league members were among those paying tribute on Wednesday to Madikizela-Mandela, who died Monday at age 81.

Former president Jacob Zuma visited Madikizela-Mandela’s house in the Soweto area of Johannesburg and called her death a “big loss.” She had supported calls for Zuma, dogged by scandals, to step down. Zuma resigned in February and is scheduled to appear in court Friday on corruption charges.

A memorial will be held for Madikizela-Mandela at the Regina Mundi Catholic Church in Soweto on April 11, and her funeral will occur at Orlando Stadium there three days later.
