Zindzi Mandela also took to Twitter to comment on the rumours. “Pure African beauty. No fillers or injections involved,” she tweeted.


“Woman, you are a rock”, South African deputy president Cyril Ramaphosa said at Winnie’s 80th birthday celebrations in Cape Town.

“But she is not any other rock, she is a diamond, build to last a lifetime, built never to break,” said Ramaphosa. “She remained a symbol of strength for the many women who had lost their husbands to the liberation struggle.”

Ramaphosa quoted Maya Angelou‘s poem “I Rise” and said that, Madikizela-Mandela had lived with pain, loss and regret, but had risen above it. And, at 80, she still rises.”

On the B-day bash guest list was head of Independent Media chief executive Iqbal Survé, Minister of Home Affairs Malusi Gigaba as well as Cape Town mayor Patricia de Lille and Sports Minister Fikile Mbalula.
