The continent has truly lost a gem. Tributes have poured in for Nomzamo Winifred Madikizela-Mandela aka Winnie Mandela who passed away at Johannesburg’s Netcare – Milpark Hospital on Monday 2 April 2018.

Winnie Mandela died at the age of 81 following a long illness. Apparently, she has been in and out of the hospital for some time now. Winnie was recently admitted due to a kidney infection.
