Winnie Madikizela-Mandela, the ex-wife of South Africa's former president Nelson Mandela, has died at the age of 81.

A veteran of South Africa's anti-apartheid struggle, Winnie Mandela developed a reputation as an uncompromising opponent of the then-predominant racial segregation system.

She continued campaigning against apartheid well into Nelson Mandela's incarceration and was herself put behind bars in 1969 under Section 6 of the infamous 1967 Terrorism Act.

The anti-apartheid campaigner and second wife of the late Mandela, passed away after a long illness, her personal assistant confirmed on Monday.

She was married to Nelson Mandela, the Nobel Peace Prize winner and icon of South Africa's anti-apartheid struggle, for 38 years, with Mandela spending 27 of those behind bars.

Born in a village in Bizana, a town in Transkei [now known as Eastern Cape], on September 26, 1936, to a history teacher, Nomzamo Winifred Madikizela moved to Johannesburg in 1953 to pursue studies in social work. "Their first date was lunch at an Indian restaurant near [Nelson] Mandela's law office. Sixteen years her senior, he was amused at her inability to eat the spicy curry," Stephanie Hanes, who covered South Africa from 2005 to 2009, writes in an obituary in The Washington Post. "She sat silently, wearing an uncomfortable borrowed suit she hoped would make her look more sophisticated than her 23 years, as a slew of advice-seekers stopped to chat with her well-known date. Later, as they walked through the countryside, Nelson asked for her help raising funds. Her sandal broke on the rocky path." She married him the same year, in 1958. The two were still married during Mandela's imprisonment from 1962 to 1990.

Winnie Mandela, 81.

#Soweto uprising
Winnie Mandela played a pivotal role in the 1976 Soweto student uprising, when thousands of black students took to the streets after a government decree forced all black schools to use Afrikaans and English as languages of instruction.
However, her reputation as the Mother of the Nation was marred after she was convicted in the 1991 kidnapping and killing of a suspected 14-year-old spy, Stompie Seipei.

A six-year imprisonment sentence was later reduced to a fine.

In 1993, Winnie Mandela was elected as the president of the African National Congress (ANC) Women's League. (Ref: https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2018/04/south-africa-winnie-mandela-180402161736297.html)

It's pretty cool when you attend #church with a #historymaker that you highlight during #WomensHistoryMonth at church, and she's there... Meet Dr. Jamye Coleman Williams, the first #Woman #President of the 13th District LAY organization of the #AME Church. This #AMEpioneer worked at four #AMEColleges: #EdwardWatersCollege; #ShorterCollege; #MorrisBrownCollege and #WilberforceUniversity, where she met and married Dr. Williams in 1943. They are still happily married today.
Dr. Williams was also the first woman #Editor of the oldest #AfricanAmerican literary journal, The #AMEChurchReview. And Williams was an integral part of getting #Bishop Vashti McKenzie elected as the first woman Bishop of the #AME church. When Dr. Williams and I talked on Sunday, she told me the calls still come in from Bishops on a regular basis for consultation, which leaves little time for her to complete her book, for which she is penning herself, with the assistance of her #writer/#editor husband Dr. Williams.
More to come on this #historymaker during her book debut.
