Silent Winnie visits result centre

2014-05-09 18:43

Pretoria - Winnie Madikizela-Mandela arrived at the IEC's national result centre in Pretoria on Friday afternoon.

Dressed in black, she did not speak to the media as she was still in mourning following the death of her ex-husband former president Nelson Mandela.

She sat with Gauteng Premier Nomvula Mokonyane who briefed Madikizela-Mandela on the election results.

Speaking on Madikizela-Mandela's behalf ANC spokesperson Jackson Mthembu said: "She has come her to see that her children and her grandchildren are doing what is expected of them."

He said Madikizela-Mandela appreciated the overwhelming support the African National Congress had received in the fifth democratic election.

"Just like her, we are humbled. This confidence people have in the African National Congress is not misplaced and we not taking it for granted," Mthembu said.
