Geingob bids Winnie Mandela farewell

17 April 2018

A trade unionist in Africa, Comrade Issa Aremu, has urged African leaders to immortalise the late Winnie Madikizela Mandela, and sustain the legacies of the antiapartheid freedom fighter.

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.

"My sisters, since she was unable to come and receive her award, I'd like to invite you that you can come to Namibia so that we can give you that honour, and also allow us as Swapo and Namibia to also honour her", Geingob said during his speech at Madikizela-Mandela's funeral.

Addressing the 8th African Regional Executive Committee meeting, in Dakar, Senegal last Thursday, the Vice President (Africa) of the Geneva-based Industriall Global Union, Aremu, said "sustaining the legacies of Winnie Mandela amounts to throwing apartheid permanently into the dust-bin of history, failing which Africa risks resurrection of the evil of apartheid which Winnie courageously confronted at immeasurable costs".

She said those who vilified her mother should not for one moment think that the family would forget that.

In addition, Geingob said past year, he made a decision to honour Madikizela-Mandela with the highest honour of Namibia but she was unfortunately not able to receive her honour in person. "Only they know why they chose to share the truth now", she said.
