Johannesburg - Winnie Madikizela-Mandela's attempt to stop a meeting from happening at former president Nelson Mandela's home in Qunu has failed, broadcaster eNCA said on Tuesday.

The matter was struck off the roll because she did not own the Qunu property, eNCA said on its website.

She was also instructed to pay costs.

The meeting, which is set to take place on Friday, was called by Mandela's grandson Mandla. It would be between the Mandela family and the abaThembu clan.

eNCA reported that Madikizela-Mandela wanted to stop the meeting from happening, fearing that violence could erupt.

She also claimed to own the property, the broadcaster reported.

Mandla reportedly said the meeting would go ahead and that the men of the family would try to unite the various factions, as his grandfather would have wanted, eNCA reported.
