The ANC government has confirmed that EFF president Julius Malema will speak alongside several other dignitaries at the funeral of struggle icon Winnie Madikizela-Mandela on Saturday.

The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) have denied reports they're in exploratory talks with the African National Congress (ANC) about a possible co-operation arrangement.

He acknowledged that the stalwart had wished to see him return to the 106-year-old liberation movement, but said he had pleaded his case as to why he and members of his party couldn't do so.

Malema's speech brought the thousands of mourners at the capacity filled 40,000-seat stadium paying their last respects chanting "mother of the nation" in support of his speech.

"They are crying the loudest, more than us - who died for you", Malema said, before lambasting those who he believed had wronged the struggle veteran.

There was plenty of that going on ... and plenty of the sort of adulation that Winnie was never accorded when she was alive.

Malema took note of the people who attacked Winnie during her lifetime‚ first lashing out at the former leaders of the opposition United Democratic Front (UDF) who held a press conference during apartheid to disassociate themselves from her.

President of the Republic of Congo Denis Sassou Nguesso - one of the three Heads of States who will be at the funeral - will also deliver a tribute message.

As with her former husband Nelson Mandela's funeral, the rain poured down on the day of Madikizela-Mandela's send-off.

It is alleged that Malema pushed a police officer after he was denied entry into the Fourways Memorial Park where Winnie Madikizela-Mandela was laid to rest.

"I am here not to bury Mama, because mothers don't die". And when it came to the hypocrisy hovering around the late iconic revolutionary Winnie-Madikizela Mandela, he just had to tell it as it is. He also said that Cape Town International Airport should be named after her.

Police are reportedly investigating an alleged scuffle between Police VIP protection unit and EFF members Julius Malema and fellow Member of Parliament Mbuyiseni Ndlozi.

Some of the speakers at the funeral included President Cyril Ramaphosa, fashion icon and model Naomi Campbell and EFF leader Julius Malema.

Malema also said that Ramaphosa was Madikizela-Mandela's President and not Zuma, who had ignored her.

"I will make a proposal to the ANC national executive committee to bestow on you its highest honour", Ramaphosa said to thunderous applause from the packed stadium, not far from Madikizela-Mandela's home in Orlando West.
