The infighting in the Mandela family as the patriarch lies in a hospital bed on life support is simple a disgrace. This comes as news has leaked that Nelson Mandela is also receiving dialysis as his kidneys are failing. To echo the sentiments of retired archbishop Desmond Tutu, the family of Madiba should not ‘besmirch’ his name with their squabble, which is clearly motivated by money.
‘Please, please, please may we think not only of ourselves. It’s almost like spitting in Madiba’s face,’ Tutu said in a statement released by a foundation he leads.
‘Your anguish, now, is the nation’s anguish – and the world’s. We want to embrace you, to support you, to shine our love for Madiba through you. Please may we not besmirch his name.’
