130414st - Squabble

Description & Background

Prompted by Ismail Ayob, a former Nelson Mandela family lawyer,  Nelson Mandela's daughters Makaziwe and Zenani have filed case against his former business associates including former lawyer and friend, George Bizos. In support of their claim, Makaziwe and Zenani state that Mandela's grandson, Mandla was among Mandela’s 17 beneficiaries who supported their court action although now Mandla has threatened to take his aunts to court for allegedly dragging him into the family’s artwork saga.  Bizos has labelled this suit as a ploy to 'resuscitate' the sale of artworks of Mandela's handprints. This story and dispute goes back to 2003 and 2005, when Mandela asked Ayob to relinquish sole control of the trust and to stop selling his "Hand Prints" in 2005.
