Nelson Mandela

Family Feud - 05 Jul 2013
Images relating to an ongoing family feud regarding the bodies of three of Nelson Mandela's children which were moved to a different location by Mandela's grandson and heir Mandla. The feud between factions of Mandela's family descended into soap opera farce on Thursday when Mandla accused relatives of adultery and milking the fame of the revered anti-apartheid leader.

With Mandela on life-support in a Pretoria hospital, the escalating feud has transfixed and appalled South Africa in equal measure as it contemplates the reality that the father of the post-apartheid "Rainbow Nation" will not be around forever.

Newspapers have plastered "Mandela vs. Mandela" headlines across their front pages and editorials have bemoaned the cruel irony of bitter divisions inside the family of a man lauded the world over as the epitome of reconciliation between races.
