Estranged wife of former South African leader Winnie Madikizela-Mandela is due for a repeated surgery on her back on Thursday, the Reuters reported.
She was said to have first had a surgery on March 8. The 79-year-old Winnie Mandela was an ardent anti-apartheid campaigner during her ex-husband’s 27-year incarceration for his fight against white minority rule. Just last week, a court dismissed her claim to Mandela’s ancestral home at Qunu in the Eastern Cape province.
Winnie Madikizela-Mandela had claimed she bought the Qunu property in 1989 while her husband was still in jail.
Mandela died in 2013 and gave nothing
from his $4.1 million estate.
