Executors of Mandela’s Estate to Oppose Winnie’s Qunu Bid
Johannesburg — The executors of former president Nelson Mandela’s estate will oppose ANC MP Winnie Madikizela-Mandela’s court bid to get his Qunu home, they said on Monday.
“The executors in the estate of the late Mr Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela have resolved to oppose the claim filed by Mrs Nomzamo Winifred [Winnie] Mandela in the High Court, Mthatha,” Deputy Chief Justice Dikgang Moseneke said in a statement.
This followed efforts to resolve the dispute amicably.
“In effect, the claim seeks to undermine or alter the last will and testament of the late Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela.”
To that extent, the executors were obliged to defend the validity of the will and the wishes of Mandela.
