EFF provincial convenor Mgcini Tshwaku said Madikizela-Mandela lost her husband three times.

Members of the EFF gathered in Soweto to visit Winnie Madikizela-Mandela to pay tribute to her ex-husband, former president Nelson Mandela.

EFF provincial convenor Mgcini Tshwaku said  Madikizela-Mandela lost her husband three times.

"First was when he went to prison, when they divorced, and now."

Winnie was banned and banished to Brandfort in the Free State for her opposition to apartheid and for lobbying for her then-husband to be released from prison.

The party's members sang freedom songs about Mandela and Madikizela-Mandela.

"Hake hopola Winnie le Mandela ke hlakana hlooho," they sang in SeTswana, meaning "when I think of Winnie and Mandela I go crazy".
