Most notoriously, she was found guilty of ordering the kidnapping of a 14-year-old boy, Stompie Seipei, also known as Stompie Moeketsi, who was beaten and killed by members of her personal bodyguard in 1989.
The younger Madikizela-Mandela grew up in what's now Japanese Cape province and got here to Johannesburg as town's first black feminine social employee. The debates, and complexities of the struggle icon are set to continue.
The hearse carrying the body of the late Winnie Madikizela-Mandela (pictured left) arrived at her home yesterday evening. "We did not do the same for her", Ramaphosa said. He said those who had wronged her were among her mourners on Saturday. "But her contribution can not be overlooked", he said. And all we ask is: no matter how tempting it may be to compare and contrast them, just know that sometimes it is enough to contemplate two historical figures and accept that they complemented each other, far more than any popular narrative might suggest.
Supporters from all over, many clad in the ANC colours, flocked to attend the service.
She described Madikizela-Mandela as "a heroine for a whole continent and a symbol of resistance".

"Sell outs‚ we see you..." It was Winnie who was fearless enough to say that Mandela sold out.
The ANC was willing to forgive the apartheid government that had displaced, tortured, jailed and killed black South Africans, but they made a decision to prosecute fellow comrade Winnie.
"I'm sorry, Mama, that your organisation delayed in according you its honour, to this point in time and moment. 'That statement and those tears have stayed with me since that day", Ramaphosa said.
"We are celebrating the fruits of Mama Winnie's work today in South Africa". The pain you inflicted on her lives on in us.
Dlamini-Mandela accused the media of being complicit in a long "smear campaign" against her mother.

Mesereau asked Constand about a previous failed business endeavor, where she allegedly borrowed almost $6,000 from an investor. She said she wanted to recount the trip for her mother and agent but destroyed it years later after seeing a psychiatrist.
"There were times when people could not afford a funeral and she would assist", said neighbour Gloria Searole, 31, a service consultant who went to catch a glimpse of the procession along with her daughter. "It was a life of compassion", said the president. Madikizela-Mandela died April 2 at age 81.
Ramaphosa said she defied apartheid ideology and male superiority.
Given this context of lies and propaganda, we believe it is critical that concrete evidence is brought forward to substantiate claims that specific journalists supported the apartheid state's security establishment. "But Winnie Mandela refused to break".
"It was hard as there was tear gas and we faced being arrested because the police said nobody except the family would attend the funeral". What do I tell them, what about those who killed their husbands for selfish gains? EFF leaders encouraged their members to act with discipline during the funeral.
Mourners dressed in the colours of the ruling African National Congress (ANC), as well those of the radical opposition Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF), sang "there's no-one like Winnie", an adapted popular liberation struggle song. The casket was also draped with an ANC flag.
