Ulale NgoXolo Nontsikelelo Albertina Sisulu!!

Nontsikelelo Albertina Sisulu (21 October 1918 – 2 June 2011) was a black South African anti–apartheid activist, and the widow of fellow activist Walter Sisulu (1912–2003). She was affectionately known as Ma Sisulu throughout her lifetime by the South African public. In 2004 she was voted 57th in the SABC3’s Great South Africans. She died on 2 June 2011 in her home in Linden, Johannesburg, South Africa.

For more than 50 years, Albertina committed herself to The Albertina Sisulu Foundation, which works to improve the lives of small children and old people. She was honoured for her commitment to the anti-apartheid struggle and her social work when the World Peace Council, based in Basel, Switzerland, elected her president from 1993 to 1996

We send our condolences to the Sisulu Family as they have lost another strong icon, “We will always place you in our hearts Mama, Ulale ngoXolo”
