While the majority complimented her beauty, others sent the rumour mill into a frenzy with speculation that the former wife of Nelson Mandela had cosmetic surgery done to her face.
Her granddaughter, Zoleka revealed that she had a lengthy conversation with her gran about the rumours, and that Winnie thinks its hilarious.
“This is us last night talking about all the rumours regarding the plastic surgery, skin bleaching and Botox she’s supposedly had done!!! The memes circulating too, she finds those as ridiculously funny as the gossip! In the words of my mother/Queen in law, Maman Regine, ‘get a life.’,” Zoleka wrote on Instagram.
Zindzi Mandela also took to Twitter to comment on the rumours. “Pure African beauty. No fillers or injections involved,” she tweeted.
