CAPE TOWN - The Bizana Local Municipality says having the church in which the late Winnie Madikizela-Mandela was married declared a heritage site will give the town value.

The National Heritage Council made the declaration on Thursday during a prayer service in the Ludeke Village where the late struggle stalwart was born.

Mayor Daniswa Mafumbatha says the site will generate revenue for the region to benefit the people of Bizana.
