Nelson’s father, Mandla – the oldest male descendant – had his own court battles top fight involving divorce, alleged bigamy and his secret digging of the graves of three of second-generation Mandelas and moved them to Mvezo where he is the village chief. Besides the exhumation, Mandla also bulldozed the remains of his grandfather’s birthplace and Mvezo and replaced it with a replica. Meanwhile, Makaziwe, the former president’s daughter, has also been criticised for launching a court battle to gain legal control of a $2.8-million trust fund in the U.S. financed by royalties from Mandela-branded artwork, although she later abandoned the initiative.
