This comes on the one year anniversary of Madikizela-Mandela's death, and there has already been much debate around her legacy. 

The EFF and ANC, for example, got into an argument after the EFF's proposal to rename Cape Town International Airport in honour of Madikizela-Mandela failed. This led to Julius Malema and Fikile Mbalula arguing on Twitter.
