In a video clip posed by HuffPost earlier this month, two days after Madikizela-Mandela's death, the struggle icon made references to Gqubule and Harber, saying they had portrayed her negatively in the media and were "used" by Stratcom, an allegation Harber contends is completely unfounded.

She said those who vilified her mother should not for one moment think that the family would forget that. "I am, therefore, inviting my sisters to Namibia to receive this honour so that Namibia can pay a befitting honour on her", he said.

She also questioned why men in the struggle weren't subjected to the same scrutiny, and said, "double standards obscure the enormous efforts of women" in the struggle.

We have been shielded from our own pain by your condolences. "We persecuted her. The very people she had sacrificed so much to save". "She fought because the fight against apartheid was not some polite picnic at which you showed up in your best behaviour", she said.

"14 April 2018 marked a new era that will be regarded as the post-Winnie Mandela era in our country".

"You [Madikizela-Mandela] trusted that your mission of putting the country first was embraced by an organisation that you loved; but Mama, you did not know that your organisation had been rendered incapable of loving you back", said Malema. "We did not do the same for her", Ramaphosa said.
