An abaThembu elder who chaired Friday’s meeting in Qunu to discuss Mandela family matters says all issues have been “settled forever”.
A senior leader within the AbaThembu royal family and cousin of former president Nelson Mandela has called for bickering in the family to stop and for people to respect the late statesman’s wishes.
A meeting of the AbaThembu royal families can go ahead at Nelson Mandela’s Qunu home, the Mthatha High Court has ruled.
Winnie Madikizela-Mandela says the threat of violence and damage to property is the main reason Mandla Mandela shouldn’t be allowed to hold a family meeting at Nelson Mandela’s Qunu home.
There’s a man lurking around the streets in cities and towns in the Eastern Cape, and he’s handing out plants and packets of mysterious seeds to passers-by.
Yet another Mandela family feud is heading to court – Winnie Madikizela-Mandela is trying to stop Mandla Mandela from hosting a family meeting at Nelson Mandela’s Qunu home.
Eastern Cape Premier Phumulo Masualle wants to know why the province failed to meet its own target of a 70% pass rate for the class of 2014.
A Sunday morning church visit was what led AbaThembu King Buyelekhaya Dalindyebo to bury the hatchet with President Jacob Zuma.
Guests expect “sparks to fly” when the Mandela family meets in Qunu on January 16 to discuss, among other things, Mandla Mandela’s role and Winnie Madikizela-Mandela’s claim to her late ex-husband’s home in the Eastern Cape village.
The chairperson of the ANC in the Eastern Cape, Premier Phumulo Masualle, has admitted his party is worried about losing power in Nelson Mandela Bay in the 2016 local government elections.
The school holidays have only just begun, but Eastern Cape premier Phumulo Masualle says it’s “all systems go” for the province’s 2015 academic year.
A Mandela family meeting in Qunu, Eastern Cape, last weekend degenerated into shouting, accusations and a near fistfight, four sources have told City Press.

I run because I run, and lately it feels like I’ve been running for my life.
From the corridors of Parliament to the beautiful plains of Giyani, the notion of a rainbow nation is sung out as an obvious reality.
