Johannesburg - Struggle stalwart Winnie Madikizela-Mandela has opened a case of theft after discovering her R83 000 birthday cash gift had gone missing on Thursday.

Police stationed at the Orlando East police station confirmed with News24 that the former first lady had indeed opened a case at the station earlier in the day but would not be drawn into giving further details.

However, News24 understands that Madikizela-Mandela discovered the money was missing when she took her bag out of her wardrobe at her home to look for bread money.

The 80-year-old had allegedly received money amounting to R83 000 as a birthday gift. She had allegedly planned to deposit the money at a bank soon.
