Winnie Mandela was the last of the titans, says Aregbesola
Aregbesola, in a statement by his Media Adviser, Sola Fasure, said Winnie represented the last bastion of those who freed South Africa from the shackles of white obnoxious rule, which ended in the early nineties.
He noted that Winnie, former wife of late Nelson Mandela, exhibited uncommon leadership and strength of character by providing leadership for a people under economic and political bondage to the land of freedom.
He said that her husband’s incarceration for 27 years did not deter her; rather, she picked up the gauntlet and continued the struggle where he and other apartheid fighters left it until he was freed.
“Her death is the end of an era. Winnie is definitely irreplaceable. On behalf of the government and the good people of Osun, I send our heartfelt condolences to Africa National Congress (ANC), the government and entire people of South Africa on the exit of this irrepressible and indefatigable freedom fighter.”
