Johannesburg - Nelson Mandela's ex-wife Winnie Madikizela-Mandela arrived shortly after 11.30am at the FNB Stadium to loud cheers from the crowd on Tuesday.

“Winnie, Winnie, Winnie,” reverberated through the stadium.

The crowd roared again when she moved to the main stage.

The service, which was scheduled to begin at 11am, was delayed as some dignitaries were still arriving. - Sapa
