Winnie: Africa has lost a courageous woman, says Buhari

By Chesa Chesa
The death of South-African anti-apartheid icon, Mrs. Winnie Madikizela-Mandela, has hugely deprived Africa of a courageous woman, says President Muhammadu Buhari, in a tribute to mourn the activist.
The President noted that she was a woman of uncommon determination, steadfastness and perseverance who held aloft the torch of the struggle against institutionalised discrimination even while her ex-husband, the late Madiba, President Nelson Mandela was incarcerated.
President Buhari, on behalf of the government and people of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, commiserated with the family of the deceased, the government and people of South Africa.
In a statement issued by his office on Monday, Buhari urged them to be consoled by the knowledge that the late Winnie Mandelaa��s contributions to ending apartheid will not be forgotten.
According to him, she remained a pride not only to the African woman, but indeed all Africans, and prayed for God to comfort all those who mourn the departed and grant her soul eternal rest.
