Mandela denies claims that he wants Zuma prosecuted at any cost

Nelson Mandela’s grandson Mandla Mandela has firmly denied allegations made by former president Jacob Zuma that he has joined those who want the former president prosecuted at any cost.

Mandela says the claims which are contained in the 23-page leaked speaking notes of Zuma when he met with the ANC Top Six on March 8th are simply not true. In the notes, which have since become widely available to the public, Zuma told the Cyril Ramaphosa-led Top Six that he had no faith that the party would help him fight the Zondo Commission, and his perceived persecution was as a result of some of his comrades stabbing him in the back.
