“The Mandela family has sent my wife Nkosikazi Nobubele Mandela [nee Anais Grimaud] back to her home after it was discovered she has been having an affair with one of my brothers,” he said. “I confirm this affair resulted in a son that Nkosikazi Nobubele gave birth to in 2011.”
In a statement released, Mandla Mandela said DNA tests confirmed that the boy was not his son but he did not identify which of his two brothers was responsible.
“The revelation of this affair has come as a shock to me and the rest of my family,” the statement reads. “It has been made more painful because it is my own brother who is at the centre of the crisis.”
