Nelson Mandela’s troubled grandson, Mbuso Mandela, was granted bail of R1 000 when he briefly appeared at the Alexandra Magistrates’ Court on Friday. The case was postponed to June 29.
The 30-year-old was arrested on Wednesday night following a police raid at his Morningside apartment in Johannesburg. He faces charges of possession of an unlicensed firearm and drugs.
City Press reported that he was nabbed after the police received a tip off from his landlord who stopped the men in blue during a routine patrol in the neighbourhood after complaints from other tenants.
National Prosecuting Authority spokesperson Phindi Mjonondwane confirmed that Mandela was granted bail and would appear in court again next month.
