Mandela's Ex-wife Madikizela Hospitalized

Struggle stalwart Winnie Madikizela-Mandela has been hospitalised, a media report at the weekend said.

It is unclear why Madikizela-Mandela was hospitalised, Eyewitness News reported, but she was previously treated for a diabetic condition.

The High Court in Mthatha last week dismissed Madikizela-Mandela's application for ownership of her late former husband, Nelson Mandela’s, home, News24 reported.

It is unclear when exactly she was admitted to hospital with EWN quoting friends as saying she was hospitalised after the judgment but then reporting others as saying she was taken in some weeks back.

Her lawyer Mvuso Notyesi said they would appeal the ruling. EWN reported that Madikizela-Mandela had been hospitalised some time before the judgment.

In recent years, she has been hospitalised several times. In 2014, she underwent a surgery, the Sunday World reported. In June 2012, she had surgery for a broken wrist and in 2011 was hospitalised at least twice to treat her diabetes.
