Expert's answer

Winifred Madikizela Mamdela was born September 26, 1936 Bizana, Pondoland district and died April 2, 2018, Johannesburg, South. She was a South African social worker and activist and considered by many Black South Africans to be the “Mother of the Nation.” She was the second wife of Nelson Mandela, from whom she separated in 1992 after her questionable behaviour and unrestrained militancy alienated fellow anti-apartheid activists, including her husband. Maselekwane Modjadji I (died 1854) was the first Rain Queen of the South African Balobedu tribe. Maselekwane reigned from 1800 to 1854. She lived in complete seclusion, deep in the forest where she practiced secretive rituals to make rain. These two are regarded as African feminist; for instance, although Winnie Mandela was granted visitation rights, Mandela had no physical contact with her husband for nearly 22 years. Left without options, she embodied the indomitable spirit of many African women who simply would not back down against the threat of annihilation through death, imprisonment, sexual or physical violence, isolation, or torture.
