The ANC Women's League in partnership with the Charlotte Maanya-Maxeke Institute wishes to invite all women across South Africa who belong to the different church women's manyano to join them in celebrating the life of its former President.
In South Africa, Thursdays are dedicated to oomama bomanyano and Mam'Winnie was a member of the Methodist women's manyano. To give respect to the life she chose in the church, it is befitting that tomorrow is dedicated to praying and thanking Mam' Winnie's contribution in the struggle for the emancipation of the black majority especially women.
The ANCWL is calling on the women in Soweto and in South Africa to join members of the ANC and ANCWL in paying their respect to the family.
Members of the media are invited to attend and cover the events organized as follows:
05 April 2018
07:30 - AME Church, 1st Street, Kliptown, Soweto
08:45 - Wreath Laying Ceremony on the grave of Mam' Charlotte Maxeke, Nancfield Cemetery, Soweto
10:00 - ANC NEC visit to Mam'Winnie Madikizela-Mandela's home in Orlando West, Soweto.
