While there, they met with government officials, members of the African National Congress, religious leaders and activists.

The Rev. Dr. Herbert Daughtry said, “Before our departure, at our rally Tuesday, April 10, 2018, we said we would give a personal account upon our return. We had a very sad journey, but at the same time, it was very joyful as we celebrated the life and times of Winnie Mandela. We echo the saying in South Africa, ‘Winnie is not dead; she multiplied.’”
