In our Maungwe tribe of Makoni lying in the heart of Manicaland in Zimbabwe we say Gomo Rawa for such heroes of people. We then give a strong gun salute and bury women like Winnie Mandela in a place for legendaries. Gomo Rawa means a mountain has fallen.This is a mountain and its rubbles and heavy impact felt round the world. Heroes fight a good fight and rest. You did exactly that.
You fought a great fight and you inspired millions of generations in South Africa and the whole world. You inspired me personally. Rest in peace Winnie Mandela. Rest in peace daughter of the soil. You stood up against injustices. Many thrive today because of your dedication.
To be a wife and a woman and a mother is never easy. Throughout your political career you were real. You real the Queen of Africa.
Rest in peace my hero.
Below I share a tribute from Global Movement of African Diaspora and Migrants

For the first time in our Six year history Women4Africa will be presenting a ‘Lifetime Achievement Award’.
Since its inception, Women4Africa has awarded a number of women in various categories and also awarded recognition awards but at its 6th annual awards which will be taking place on Saturday 20th May 2017, Women4Africa will be present a Lifetime Achievement award to its 2012 UK Humanitarian of the year and then 2014 Recognition awardee, ‘Muzvare Betty Makoni’.
“To begin to highlight the numerous accomplishments and achievements of this outstanding woman, one would need at least a month. From we first came to hear of CNN Hero Muzvare Betty Makoni in 2012, we have followed her work passionately as it resonates so well with our causes.
It is an absolute honour for the entire Women4Africa team to be presenting the very first Lifetime Achievement to the woman who is seen as a role model, an inspiration and a true hero to many. We welcome as many of you as can make it to come and witness a part of history that will be made on that day” says Women4Africa founder Tola Onigbanjo.To read about Muzvare Betty Makoni and her great work click this link http://www.w4ablog.com/muzvare-betty-makoni-set-to-receive-lifetime-achievement-award-at-women4africa-2017/
