A grandson of former South African President Nelson Mandela has been charged with assault on suspicion of drawing a firearm against someone last month, a prosecutor in South Africa said Thursday.
Mandla Mandela is accused of drawing a firearm after a man crashed a car into a vehicle driven by one of Mandela's guests in October, according to a senior prosecutor in Mthatha.
Mandela appeared in a Mthatha magistrate's court, and his case was postponed until February 24.
