Songs and chants at the gates of Winnie Madikizela-Mandela's modest two-storey red-brick home in Orlando continued on Tuesday as people paid their respects to the fallen heroine. They were joined by the leadership of the EFF, who arrived in Soweto to pay their respect to the mother of the nation.
HuffPost journalists were outside the home, and reporting from the scene.

Known as the "mother of the nation" for her role in fighting apartheid, Madikizela-Mandela died on Monday at the age of 81 at the Netcare Milpark Hospital in Johannesburg.
