Nelson Mandela's grandson, 24, accused of raping a 25-year-old girl

Nelson Mandela's grandson Mbuso Mandela has been charged with raping a 15-year-old in a toilet in South Africa. A police spokesperson reports that the 24-year-old appeared at a Johannesburg court yesterday and will be held in police custody until he returns for a bail hearing on Friday.

South Africa's Daily Sun reports that according to the victim's family spokesperson; Mbuso allegedly grabbed the victim as she entered a toilet at an unnamed restaurant in Greenside on Friday. The girl who was allegedly raped by Mbuso Mandela went to the restaurant with friends.

He added: 'Apparently, she went to the toilet and he grabbed her and raped her inside one of the toilets.' The website reported that after the alleged attack, Nelson Mandela's second wife Winnie sent a bodyguard - who posed as a police officer - to the family's home to intimidate them.

'Winnie's bodyguard went to the family pretending to be a cop,' the family spokesman continued. 'The father was told there was no need to arrest the suspect but when the father asked to see his badge, he didn't have one. It turned out he had been sent by Winnie.'

The family spokesman added that the alleged victim's family was furious with the way the Mandelas had treated them. He said: 'Just because they have a famous surname, they think they can get away with crime... The girl is young and doesn't even drink.'
