“He’s Not My Son” – Nelson Mandela’s Grandson Mandla Mandela Kicks Out His Second Wife Anais Grimaud – DNA Test revealed “Son” Qheya fathered by his Brother



Mandla & Anais

Earlier today, BN received an interesting press statement.
Nelson Mandela’s grandson, ANC MP Mandla Mandela released a press statement a few hours ago and here are excerpts from the statement.

The Mandela family have sent my wife, Nkosikazi Nobubele Mandela, back to her home after it was discovered that she had been having an affair with one of my brothers. I can confirm that this affair resulted in a son that Nkosikazi Nobubele gave birth to in 2011…The revelation of this affair has come as a shock to me and the rest of my family…It has been made more painful because it is my own brother who is at the centre of the crisis.

BN sought verification of the authenticity of the story and according to the South African daily Sowetan Newspaper, “Freddy Pilusa of FNP Communications said that he had released it on behalf of Mandela and verified its authenticity”. The story has also been picked up by the international press including the UK Telegraph, Daily Mail and Independent.

Mandela with his grandson Qheya and his parents

Here is the background story – 38 year old Mandla Mandela married Anais Grimaud in 2010. Their relationship created controversy because he was still married to his first wife, Tanda Mabunu-Mandela. After their wedding, Anais who is from the French Overseas Territory Island – Reunion, changed her name to Nkosikazi Nobubele Mandela. Their son Qheya  was born in 2011. His first wife, Tanda fought the marriage in court and it was annulled but the couple stayed together. Tanda and Mandla are currently going through a formal divorce.

In late 2011, rumours swirled that Mandla had also married Swazi princess, Nodiyala Mbali Makhathini.

Anais has reportedly moved back to her home island, Reunion.

Truth is stranger than fiction! That said, they should not drag Mandela’s name through the mud with their personal issues.

    The child still remains the grandson of Nelson Mandela. Poor kid. Devious wife and brother/father. I’m sure Amandlas first wife will feel vindicated seeing as her cuckolded husband had wronged her first!!

    Donatus nyerere. What a generous one. Now the child’s will grow up with challenges and unnecessary burden because of a very generous sampler of a mother

  7. ...just saying

    With all due respect I believe a real man would not have released such a press statement. You can “let her off” for adultery but protect the innocent child and your family name….. I know it’s painful and unimaginable but that’s what a real man does. (I personally think the battle should primarily be with his brother not her) God bless Joseph, the father of Jesus…..God bless him.

      Sometimes, people/the media get hold of such info and get ready to reveal it. It may be preemptive from him.

    MEN! They always think sleeping around and having more than one wife is cool. Very good for him. His first wife is not enough for him right?

    Fashion pro, sometimes, some stories transcend gossip. Like that of Rpatz and Kstewart… This is a Mandela we are talking about and people are going to want to know why he left his wife. This is also like Chris Okotie’s story that is all over the net. The two people involved are the ones broadcasting to the world so, it ain’t gossip

    Serves Mandla bloody right! How the first wife would be smirking and laughing her head off. I love it when karma happens without too much delay and the wronged person doesn’t have to do anything at all; just sit back and watch karma do its thing. I feel for the poor child involved. Hopefully he won’t grow up with the stigma that he was the product of a messy public affair.

    I feel you FashionPro. Bella has being like a fresh spring in the blog business for me. I come here to read about decent people, young enterprenurs, and great Nigerian Musicians. But running or ran such story is heartbreaking. Please Bellaniaja, caution. OMA’KK

    Shame on us all. Why is no one talking about the brother who slept with his brothers wife? All we are fixated are the wife and how it seves him right that his wife cheated
