- | 5 months ago

The Nelson Mandela Foundation has disputed claims that it asked to meet ambassador to Denmark Zindzi Mandela about her controversial tweets.

 In a statement released on Tuesday, the foundation said it noted with concern a City Press headline that suggested that it intended to meet Mandela.  "The foundation would like to indicate that when we declined to comment on the story, it was precisely because we had no insight into the story, or what had motivated the tweets from Ms Mandela, if indeed they were from her.

The foundation wishes to stress that it has no intention of requesting a meeting with Ms Mandela regarding the tweets," the statement read.
