A DYING ANC LEGACY
Of course Mandla Mandela was not going to take it lying down. When the Mthatha High Court ruled against him on Wednesday, thereby allowing the remains of Nelson Mandela’s three children to be returned to Qunu, it was obvious that Mandla would not simply let it go. On Thursday he hit back at his family with a vengeance, slashing open deeply buried family secrets and questioning the legitimacy of those he feels are ganging up against him. And so the ignoble saga takes another sordid twist, making a mockery of the name revered around the world. It seems the one person constantly at Mandela’s side, who is not a Mandela, knows the true value of that name. By RANJENI MUNUSAMY.

“The mayor together with the other members, including chief whip, were not present in that meeting. We however note and will further investigate the matter with our legal representative.”
