A fiery send-off for the mother of the nation Winnie Madikizela-Mandela

EFF leader Julius Malema speaking at Winnie Madikizela-Mandela's funeral at Orlando Stadium

Malema shook the stadium with his fiery speech that became a trending topic on social media.

He acknowledged that the stalwart had wished to see him return to the 106-year-old liberation movement, but said he had pleaded his case as to why he and members of his party couldn't do so.

Malema said despite his grief at her loss‚ he was comforted in the way she died‚ adding that she did not sell out her people to the apartheid regime.

"Equally big Mama, some of those who sold you to the regime are here and are crying louder than all of us who stood by you". At the funeral service held on 14 April at Orlando stadium, Malema visibly tore into the ANC leaders whom he said they claimed Winnie was now theirs yet they disowned her.

Public submissions have now also been called for. "Life is so unfair‚" Malema, clad in all black, said.

There will be plenty of time within the next few days to think about the political impact of the state funeral of Winnie Madikizela-Mandela ... and about those who saw it as an opportunity to score points over their opponents, or to burnish their own images.

"Winnie Mandela is our mother".

"I am here not to bury Mama, because mothers don't die".

"I'm here, Mama, to express my condolences to your biological children whom I know and the rest of the Madikizela and Mandela family". "They are crying the loudest, more than us - who died for you", Malema said, before lambasting those he believed had wronged the struggle veteran. He also said that Cape Town International Airport should be named after her.

Before starting his speech, the EFF leader recognised South Africa's former presidents but excluded Jacob Zuma from his salutations during the funeral service, a sign that he was still bitter with Zuma's mistreatment of him that led to his dismissal from the ANC.

It's reported that a scuffle broke out between three senior EFF leaders and a police officer after they were allegedly denied entry into the Fourways Memorial Park, with Malema reportedly saying "no white person can stop me".

Some of the speakers at the funeral included President Cyril Ramaphosa, fashion icon and model Naomi Campbell and EFF leader Julius Malema.

"I will make a proposal to the ANC national executive committee to bestow on you its highest honour", Ramaphosa said to thunderous applause from the packed stadium, not far from Madikizela-Mandela's home in Orlando West.

The ANC's current president Cyril Ramaphosa, who is also the country's president, the ANC Women's League, and the UDF were just some of those Malema targeted.
