'South African President Jacob Zuma awarded dozens of medals to mostly former Umkhonto we Sizwe members. Winnie Mandela received a Military Veterans Merit Medal in Gold while National Assembly speaker Max Sisulu was honoured with the Luthuli Commemorative Medal for “going to exile under perilous conditions”. Other dignitaries that received medals included Pallo Jordan, former Home Affairs director-general Mavuso Msimang, Essop and Aziz Pahad, Chris Hani’s wife, Limpho, Josiah Jele, Reginald September and Zuma’s spokesperson Mac Maharaj.
'“These parades bear important historical symbolism,” Zuma said. “We have created an opportunity for which the SANDF, a product of the struggle lead by these heroes…can recognise…the fighters who fought for democracy in our country.” He added that awarding medals was a way of restoring the dignity of those once vilified as terrorists.'
