Farewell Winnie Mandela

The Police and Prisons Civil Rights Union (POPCRU) joins millions of South Africans and the world in mourning the passing of one of the finest, most dedicated revolutionaries of our time, Mama Nomzamo Winifred Madikizela-Mandela.

We are saddened by her passing, and will forever cherish the courage she upheld against all forms of oppression. Throughout her life, she selflessly contributed to the demise of apartheid, became the voice of the voiceless and never once wavered in the face of injustice.

She touched the hearts of many South Africans and has championed the cause of the poor and downtrodden. Her resilient spirit kept many going during the Apartheid regime and we shall fondly remember her for those attributes.

We send our sincere condolences to the Madikizela, Mandela and the entire populace for this loss, and say that her resilient ideals shall live on.

Rest in peace Nomzamo
