Mandela Daughters Sue Father Nelson Mandela Over Control Of His Artwork Investments

Nelson Mandela’s daughters are apparently suing him. Makaziwe and Zenani Mandela are reportedly suing their father, Nelson, for the rights to his valuable art collection and the control of his millions, according to The Inquisitr.

The Inquistitr reported the two women are allegedly fighting a 2004 Johannesburg High Court order that gives Mandela the right to instruct his then-attorney Ismail Ayob to stop managing his financial, personal, and legal affairs. The order also prevented the lawyer from selling any of Nelson’s collection of art pieces.

This is what the suit mandates:

Chuene; George Bizos, a renowned human rights attorney; and Tokyo Sexwale, a cabinet minister, who are named as trustees and directors of the valuable artwork and trust, be removed from their positions and instead allow the daughters to be in control their father’s fortune. The two daughters claim that the three men were never appointed as shareholders or even directors.

The 94-year-old former president of South Africa, who has had more than his fair share of medical problems throughout the last few years, has reportedly informed his legal team in no uncertain terms that he does not want daughters Makaziwe and Zenani involved in his business dealings.

Other reports say Chuene, who manages Nelson’s investment funds are worth more than $1.7 million.

Chuene also contends that Nelson wanted his two daughters removed as trustees of the companies after they were appointed by his ex-attorney, Ayob, whom Nelson released from his duties after a disagreement.
