PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — South African activist Winnie Mandela has been buried in Johannesburg.
Tens of thousands of mourners gathered for an emotional 5 hour-long funeral.
She was the former wife of Anti-Apartheid revolutionary and later president Nelson Mandela.
Winnie Mandela herself is revered for her courage in the struggle to end white-minority rule.
South African soldiers carried Mandela’s coffin to the hearse, then walked behind the vehicle as the procession made its way through the city.
