Mbeki lauds Ma Ellen

President Thabo Mbeki has hailed anti-apartheid veteran Ellen Kuzwayo as a queen and a giant of our world. He was delivering the eulogy at her funeral service in Soweto this morning. Hundreds of people gathered at the St John's Anglican Church in Orlando East in Soweto this morning for a final farewell to Ma Ellen, as she was affectionately known. She died last week of diabetes related complications at the age of 91. Mbeki described her as one of South Africa's finest daughters for her contribution to the liberation struggle and South African literature. She will be buried at the Doornkop Cemetery.
