Shame on you Mr. Mandela

17 August 2012, 06:58


Very intresting article from The Sunday Independant.

Just because my family name is Mandela I do not have to pay my bills. But then again I am sure this is also the fault of Hendrik Verwoerd and his apartheid governement ??

We are owed by the world. Mr Mandela , driving around in a 2008 Mercedes Benz S320 CDI , that you do not pay for, please tell me what have you done for the poor, for your own people?

Your grandfather took (DONATIONS) from the rich and gave to the poor. Maybe you should look and learn.

Nelson Mandela's grandson Zondwa Mandela has allegedly refused to pay Investec what he owes for a Mercedes Benz. The Sunday Independent reported he was apparently also allegedly refusing to hand the car to the bank's recovery department. Investec spokesman Howard Tradonsky said the bank obtained a judgment and attachment order in October for the return of the 2008 Mercedes Benz S320 CDI worth R669,000. "He may have paid a few instalments in the beginning," he told the paper. "We're not dealing with Mr Mandela any differently from other debtors who are unwilling or unable to pay." Investigator Howard Blumenfeld, hired by Investec, had no address at which to serve the summons because no one seemed to know where Zondwa was.
