The National Heritage Council and Methodist Church will on Thursday hold a memorial tribute for struggle stalwart Mama Winnie Madikizela-Mandela at Ludeke village near Mbizana in the Eastern Cape.
The service will be held at the Ludeke Methodist Church where Mama Winnie married late former president Nelson Mandela on 14 June 1958.
The National Heritage Council has announced plans to refurbish the church and her home at Mbhongweni Village and both will be declared national heritage sites.
The council’s CEO Advocate Sonwabile Mancotywa will be the guest speaker at this service.
Madikizela Mandela was a staunch Methodist and attended the Methodist Wesleyan Church at Meadowlands in Soweto on Good Friday, just days before her passing.
A number of memorial services were held for the late struggle stalwart on Wednesday.
