The Nelson Mandela Foundation wants to meet with ambassador Zindzi Mandela following her social media posts on the land issue.

Communications director at the foundation told City Press that they would comment on the matter following talks with the ambassador to Denmark on her comments.

The Citizen reports that Ekurhuleni Mayor Mzwandile Masina has rallied behind Zindzi, commenting that:

“If Zindzi Mandela could address us in the 80s on behalf of her father at the height of apartheid, what will be difficult in 2019 for her to air her views on the land question which by the way we have resolve on as ANC. Land belongs to us, nothing more can be closer to the truth."
