South Africa’s struggle icon, anti apartheid leader and wife of South Africa’s democratic hero, Nelson Mandela passed on this afternoon at the Netcare Milpark hospital in Johannesburg.

She was the first black qualified social worker in South Africa. She died at age 81 and survived by two children.

Continue to rest peacefully Mama Winnie.
