ANC hon­oured Win­nie more in death than life Jesse Jack­son

Swazi Observer - - NEWS -

JO­HAN­NES­BURG - Civil rights ac­tivist, Jesse Jack­son, says the ANC didn't show Win­nie Madik­izela-Man­dela enough ap­pre­ci­a­tion.

He says free­dom fight­ers are only ap­pre­ci­ated af­ter they die.

Jack­son says the ANC hon­oured her more in death than life.

"Peo­ple hon­our mar­tyrs rather than marchers. She cher­ished be­ing a free­dom fighter," says Jack­son. Thou­sands at­te­dended Madik­ize­laMan­dela's fu­neral on Satur­day. Madik­ize­laMan­dela died on Mon­day last week. She was laid to rest next to her great-grand­chil­dren at Four­ways Memo­rial Park.
