Meet former president Nelson Mandela's son

Meet former president Mandela's wife from overseas who was impregnated by one of his brothers.

Lewanika Mandela, a lawyer who died of Aids in 2005, is the father of Mandla. Former president Nelson Mandela's son Makgato is one of his two sons. Makgato's four children, including Mandla, were born in 1974. Ndaba (1982) (whose mother was Zondi), Mbuso (1991), and Andile (1991) are Mandla's parents (1993). Zondi Mandela, his subsequent wife, died in 2003, and her cause of death was listed as pneumonia from the beginning.

In 2004, Thando Mabuna married Mandla Mandela. He married his second wife, Anas Grimaud, in 2010. Anas Grimaud was born on the island of Réunion and was given the name Nkosikazi Nobubele in Xhosa. Because he was still married to his first wife, their marriage was chastised, and she challenged it in court. She gave birth to Qheya II Zanethemba Mandela in September 2011, and he was introduced to his incredible grandfather, Nelson Mandela, at a Qunu naming ceremony.


"After it was discovered that my better half, Nkosikazi Nobubele Mandela, was having an unlawful relationship with one of my siblings, the Mandela family has sent her back to her home. I can attest to the fact that this situation resulted in the birth of Nkosikazi Nobubele in 2011... I and the rest of my family were taken aback when this situation was made public... It's been made even more difficult by the fact that the emergency is centered on my own sibling."
