Cape Town - Nelson Mandela’s daughter Zindzi has joined Twitter, starting with a series of tweets explaining why Winnie Madikizela-Mandela was left out of the former stateman’s will.

Zindzi joined the social media platform just under a week ago and has already gained more than 1 200 followers.

She said that media reports about why her mother was left out of the will were mischievous and sensationalist.

“She never attended the reading of the will as she didn't regard herself as a beneficiary,” Zindzi tweeted.

“Why would she expect to be maintained after his passing when she was never maintained during his lifetime?”

She said Winnie would continue to mourn her ex-husband’s death while “according to traditional protocols whilst holding Mama Graca's hand throughout this difficult period”.

By late on Tuesday afternoon, Zindzi was trending in Johannesburg.
