Winnie Madikizela-Mandela lost her case for Mandela’s Qunu home

- Featured article by LAWYERS-ONLINE.CO.ZA - February 2018

Earlier this month (January) Winnie Madikizela-Mandela lost her case in which she wanted claim to Mandela’s home in Qunu. She appealed against a decision made in 2016 by the Eastern Cape High Court, which dismissed that she has any claim to the property.

Winnie Madikizela-Mandela wanted the court to overturn a decision made in 1997 to donate the land to Mandela, but the SCA and Mthatha High Court found that an unreasonable delay had lapsed by Winnie Madikizela-Mandela to review the decision.

In respect of the application, the SCA maintained that a person in the position of Winnie Madikizela-Mandela would have affirmed a right to ownership of the property before Mr Nelson Mandela’s death. It was found that Winnie Madikizela-Mandela’s delay was prejudicial to Mr Nelson Mandela’s estate and heirs because his version of events was not available.

In his will, Mr Mandela left the property to the Nelson Mandela Family Trust for the benefit of the Mandela family.
