LIVE: #WinnieMandelaFuneral procession arrives at Orlando Stadium

South Africa will finally bid farewell to Nomzamo Winnie Madikizela-Mandela, who will be laid to rest in Fourways, Johannesburg after a state funeral service at Orlando Stadium.

This will end the official days of mourning that President Cyril Ramaphosa declared on April 3 - the day after the 81-year-old struggle icon died.

About 600 busses will depart from every corner of Gauteng at 04:30 and transport mourners to the stadium.

Roads around the venue will be closed to the public and vehicles will not be allowed to enter the area.
