Winnie Mandela has said the moment the military came to take the body of her former husband away was the "heaviest moment of all" as she realised he was leaving the house for good.
Speaking exclusively to ITV News presenter Mark Austin, she said: "I don’t know how others felt but when that final hour came, the military in uniform and acting so officially. It only struck me then he was leaving the house for good.
"I must say, I must have a strong heart because that was very difficult to take. I couldn't contain myself.
"The whole thing was so official. It struck me then, he was gone and that was the last journey for him.”
