STORYLINE
At a memorial service in honour of Winfred “Winnie” Mandela, the Secretary-General reaffirmed the UN’s commitment to “the ideals of equality, justice and humanity for all.”

Speaking at the memorial service today (13 Apr) in New York, the United Nations (UN) Secretary-General António Guterres extended his deepest condolences to the Government and people of South Africa and to the family of the late Ms. Madikizela-Mandela.

Guterres said “Mama Winnie”, as she was affectionately known, was a towering figure in the struggle against apartheid, adding that “she was an international symbol of resistance who left an indelible mark on the history of the 20th century.”

The UN chief also said “the outpouring of condolences since her passing shows what an enormous impact she had not only on the people of South Africa and on the African continent, but for millions around the world.”

On her dedication in fighting for women’s rights, Guterres said “as a strong and fearless woman, she had to fight patriarchy’s definitions of womanhood.”

He added “in apartheid South Africa, the combination of patriarchy and racism together meant that black women confronted enormous obstacles from the cradle to the grave – making her own achievements all the more exceptional.”

The UN chief highlighted Ms. Mandela’s resistance which inspired countless others and helped keep hope alive through the darkest periods of the struggle.

He said “faced with the most heinous of racist and discriminatory regimes, she helped lead the way in showing what it takes to overcome such tyranny – strength, defiance and courage.”

Winfred “Winnie” Nomzamo Madikizela-Mandela was a South African anti-apartheid activist, politician and the ex-wife of Nelson Mandela. She endured surveillance, harassment, torture and imprisonment, including in solitary confinement in the face of racism and discriminatory regimes.

She passed away on 2 April 2018 in her home country.
