Only a week before Winnie Madikizela-Mandela's death, her granddaughter joked about a conversation she had with Winnie.
Zoleka Mandela told her gran that she was looking for the right man for her.
Her grandmother responded: "Darling, just look at your grandfather. That's my type."
Winnie met Nelson in 1957 and a year later they were married. After his arrest in 1963 Winnie spent a great deal of time alone.
Shortly after his release in 1990 they got divorced after being married for 37 years.
Zoleka posted pics that she took of her gran at a church service in Soweto.
