Zindzi Mandela took to social media last night to break her silence after posting comments that divided Mzansi on the hotly-debated land issue.

Briefly.co.za reported earlier that Mandela's daughter had referred to white people as 'land thieves' and 'rapist descendants of Van Riebeeck', going viral in the process.

This had ruffled more than a few feathers, with the Democratic Alliance and AfriForum demanding Mandela's removal as South Africa's ambassador to Denmark.

Mandela revealed that she had returned from her trip, promising to take a stroll down the comments posted in response to hers when she got the chance.

The Economic Freedom Fighters strongly supported Mandela's comments, defending her against what they referred to as a 'racist onslaught', reports eNCA.

However, AfriForum deputy-head, Alana Bailey, claims Mandela's opinions on the matter were contributing to 'the division of local communities'.

The Department of International Relations says that it would need to verify the account's authenticity while taking the matter up with the ambassador.
