South Africa: Winnie Mandela forced auction flops

Press gather outside the Soweto, South African home of Winnie Madikizela-Mandela, former wife of former president Nelson Mandela, Tuesday, May 21, 2013. A scheduled auction to sell items belonging to Madikizela-Mandela came and went without a single bid. Court sheriff John Maluleke and two other officials joined reporters gathered outside the gated home where some of her items were expected to be sold to cover an old debt she owes for school fees for her grand-niece, but were denied entry despite officials repeatedly banging on the gate.
