Winnie Challenging Mandela’s Estate
Johannesburg – Winnie Madikizela-Mandela believes that former president Nelson Mandela’s widow Graça Machel should not inherit a property in Qunu because she owns “a whole world in Mozambique”, Sowetan reported on Tuesday.
“This property is mine and I attained it when the old man was on Robben Island, and there’s no dispute about that,” she told Sowetan’s sister newspaper the Daily Dispatch.
In October, Madikizela-Mandela’s attorney Mvuzo Notyesi told Sapa she filed papers in the Mthatha High Court challenging Mandela’s estate, seeking the rights to his Qunu home.
This was after it emerged she had been left out of his will, after he died in December last year.
