SOWETO, South Africa – The skies over Soweto waited to rip open and weep with the rest of South Africa until almost the very end of the long and spirited farewell here today for Winnie Madikizela-Mandela – the “mother of the nation.”

The state funeral for the 81-year-old freedom fighter was held in a packed soccer stadium, awash in yellow and green, the colors of the African National Congress, or ANC, which she devoted much of her life to. The prayers, speeches and music began in the searing sunshine Saturday morning and stretched well into the afternoon.
