More Comes To Light In Mandela's Grandson's Rape Charge
A spokesman for the family of the teenager accusing Nelson Mandela's grandson of rape says Winnie Madikizela-Mandela tried to derail a complaint.
The spokesman said on Wednesday that Madikizela-Mandela, the late Mandela's divorced wife, sent her bodyguard to the 15-year-old girl's home.
The spokesman said the bodyguard posed as a policeman but had no badge.
The spokesman, who refused to allow his name to be used by any of the media, said the bodyguard then revealed that he was there on behalf of Madikizela-Mandela.
The spokesman said Madikizela-Mandela promised to ask the provincial police commissioner to handle the case.
The family reported the rape when they did not hear from Madikizela-Mandela again.
Madikizela-Mandela's office has not responded to questions.
Police say Mbuso Mandela, 24, is to appear in court Friday.
