We declined to comment on Zindzi Mandela story - NMF

Foundation notes with concern the Rapport article's suggestion to contrary

Media Statement: The Nelson Mandela Foundation spells out its ‘No Comment’ response

The Nelson Mandela Foundation has noted, with concern the article by Jacob Rooi, whose headline suggests that the Foundation intends summoning Ms Zindzi Mandela to a meeting regarding her alleged tweets on Friday, 15 June. 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.
