Johannesburg - Outspoken musician and activist, Ntsiki Mazwai claims that former president Nelson Mandela was a "bitter man" and says South Africa chose the wrong Mandela as president.
Ntsiki has never been one to pull punches and after observing the current court battle between Winnie Madikizela-Mandela and her late ex-husband's estate this week, she took to Twitter to give her controversial views on the former statesman and his ex-wife.
I resent Madiba because of what he did to Winnie. He was so bitter and wanted to humiliate her with this will. What an ungrateful bitter man— DownloadPowerNtsiki (@ntsikimazwai) March 2, 2016

Winnie Madikizela-Mandela is currently challenging her ex-husband's estate, seeking the rights to his home in Qunu, Eastern Cape.
Earlier this week, advocate George Bizos told the media that the former president had not provided for Winnie in his final will, and that she had done nothing with the estate for the 17 years it was in Nelson Mandela's name.
Winnie's lawyers are claiming that despite the couple's divorce in 1996, their customary marriage remained intact and therefore, according AbaThembu custom, his home in Qunu belongs to her.
According to IOL, Nelson Mandela's last will and testament left the Qunu home to all members of the Mandela family as a place to unify the family.
Judgement was reserved on Tuesday morning in the matter currently before the Mthatha High Court.
