'We see ourselves in you': The most poignant tributes to Ma Winnie, one year on
As April 2 marks a year since the death of struggle icon Winnie Madikizela-Mandela, social media have been flooded with messages of remembrance as South Africans and the world pay tribute to the fallen stalwart.
Affectionately known as the "mother of the nation", Madikizela-Mandela died at the age of 81 at Milpark Hospital in Johannesburg after a long illness.
At her funeral, Economic Freedom Fighters leader Julius Malema championed for Cape Town International Airport to be renamed after her. The party has since brought the proposal before parliament, gaining social media support.
Last year, many wore doeks in honour of Winnie Mandela under the banner "She did not die. She multiplied".
#MamaWinnie has trended on social media as many remember and honour her.
Watch: Today we remember a pillar & heroine of this great nation, uMama Winnie Madikizela Mandela. A gallant warrior, she was a freedom fighter whose revolutionary fire never stopped burning.
