Johannesburg – Afrikaans singer Steve Hofmeyr has been tight lipped after a fierce Twitter war with Nelson Mandela's former personal assistant Zelda la Grange over the weekend, reports Beeld.

It all started when Steve tweeted a link to an article by black American writer Emanuel McLittle which was published in 2002. In the article McLittle says Mandela is of average intelligence and that he left South Africa in a chaotic state after his presidential term. Steve tweeted the link together with "Must read. Hel. Wat ’n stuk". (Must read. Hell. What a piece)

This caused La Grange to respond to Hofmeyr, saying he should say how he really feels.

After a few tweets between Steve and La Grange, Steve made the following statement about Madiba:


(The model of mutual forgiveness which he was, means Fuck All for my people and the future of their children.)

La Grange told Beeld on Monday that it’s important to stimulate debate about Madiba’s legacy. Steve refused to comment on the matter.
