Mthatha High Court to deliver judgment in the case involving Winnie Madikizela-Mandela
In March, a full bench of judges heard her application seeking to be given rights to former President Mandela's house in Qunu outside Mthatha.
Madikizela-Mandela's lawyers argued that in terms of the customary marriage she is the rightful owner of the house in Qunu, but Nelson Mandela's executors opposed her application, arguing that civil marriage supersedes the customary one.
Her legal representative, Senior Counsel Patrick Mtshaulana, argued that Madikizela-Mandela is the rightful owner of the house saying though the civil marriage was dissolved through a divorce, the customary marriage had not been dissolved.
But, Advocate Vincent Maleka, representing the Nelson Mandela Trust, argued that Madikizela-Mandela's claims have no factual basis.
