The former wife of Nelson Mandela exclusively told ITV News she is now head of the family following his death.
Winnie Mandela said it is "the traditional right" that she becomes head of the Mandela family, adding, "It is not a case of assuming anything".
Asked whether she would now inherit the Mandela mantle politically speaking she laughed, saying: "We never even planned to be who we are in this struggle.
"It’s not for me to say, ‘Yes, here I am inheriting a political position’. No we’ve never done that.”
