Mbuso Mandela

Nelson Mandela's grandson was charged with raping a 15-year-old girl inside a South African bar restroom, the NY Daily News reports.

Mbuso Mandela, 24, is being held in jail until a bail hearing on Friday.

The girl told police she met young Mandela while dining with friends at a popular Johannesburg restaurant.

After she excused herself to go the restroom, Mandela assaulted the girl inside the restroom, a family spokesman told the Daily Sun newspaper.

"He grabbed her and raped her inside one of the [toilet stalls],” the spokesman said.

The spokesman said the Mandela family tried to interfere with the police investigation into the rape.

Self-appointed Mandela family enforcer Winnie Madikizela-Mandela allegedly sent her bodyguard — disguised as a cop — to the victim’s home to intimidate the family into dropping the charges.

The bodyguard told the girl's family that police would not arrest young Mandela.

When the girl's father asked to see his badge, he couldn’t produce one. "It turned out he had been sent by Winnie,” the family spokesman said.

“Just because they have a famous surname, they think they can get away with crime,” the spokesman said. “Children can’t just be raped and then everything is alright.”

Mandela, who died in 2013, has 17 grandchildren.

    Why would Amy Poeler (sic) want Blu to turn 18 so R Kelly could piss on her? Even if she didn't write it (as she claims) why would she even repeat that disrespectful mess ????? And I use to like her, not amy more though. :smdh:

  • Jessica

  • yallcrazy

    He has bought shame on Mandela's name. See that's this new era of self indulged kids from wealthy families. They be dumb as rocks and think they shish don't stink. I hope they rape him back. Don't they do eye for an eye over there?

  • yallcrazy

    Wealthy people don't whip they kids azz. Plus they don't make them do chores or get a job.

  • yallcrazy

    I think it was a restaurant with a bar

  • Renee Bee

    Agreed. Their humor is corny.

  • Ruby shine

    Oh Gawd I pray not. With his family playing games and running intimidation tactics, others are prolly scared to come forward.

  • Renee Bee

    Oh Auntie updated the post. I wonder if we will ever find out the real truth behind the disappearance. #Tea

  • PettyEyezPrime

    He out here acting a plum fool and Porsha ??dumb as a box of rocks. Your legacy isn't enough to allow you to go through life thinking a name is all you need to get by. DO WAY BETTER!

  • Afiya

    Wow, could be possible. I'm going to do the education. Do you have a link?

  • Ladysweetthang

    I suppose all the energy put into movements they thought the kids would be ok. Similar to the parents that work 22 hours a day to be rich and only to come back home to bad azz kids. Sad

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    No tea. She saw her chance to escape with her therapy dog. Even the dog couldn't take living with Rosie.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    It was a joke. Young people are so sensitive.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    He didn't just start raping girls at 24.

  • THE OLDER SISTAH

    Her attempt at a joke was a major fail. Not only that but who uses a child in a joke of that sort? You are right, both her and Tina Fey are corny as hell.

  • Jusstlookn2

    Bawwwwahhhhhhhaaaaaaaa... Do was out too.

  • http://Copblock.org aDingoDrankMyBabies

    Lemme catch that heffa on the street? Allegedly...She ain't Neva met a hair pulla like me. Snatched all the way bald. Just wait, allegedly??

  • Smartypants

    I understand the outrage, but I feel like people are blowing this out of proportion. And even on the show she got make-believe backlash.

    I think what the writers were trying to illustrate is the fact that people do indeed say wild ish like that on Twitter.

    If her parents haven't released a statement....or reached out to her privately then *shrug*

    But "knowing" Jay and Bey they would do the latter. But Solange might go awf, but I doubt they give her clearance to do that.

  • You Aint Shyt-LuhYou, B.Sweet

    That dude who is accused just happens to be the grandson of Nelson Mandela. Nelson Mandela didn't do this. Regular old people's grandkids get in trouble everyday. We gotta stop putting people on a pedestal because of who they're related to because in the end they are their own person.

    I know I'm not the only one in here with unsavory ain't shyt relatives. I'll quickly correct you if you tie me in with their BS.

  • Smartypants

    Say that!

  • You Aint Shyt-LuhYou, B.Sweet

    I get it was a joke but it was one done in poor taste. Wasn't Kylie Jenner an option when the joke was originally written? I'm just playin'... maybe.

  • THE OLDER SISTAH

    I respectfully disagree with you. It's not being blown out of proportion it's getting the very reaction it should be getting.
    How would she or her writers feel if their child was mentioned instead?

  • Smartypants

    I feel you. You're right, they would be pissed. But it was a joke. And honestly, from a marketing pov, this is a goldmine. Why continue to give it attention since, in the long run, will aid and abet more jokes like this being written and the success of the show?

    ETA: I hope y'all go as hard for the little girls in y'all neighborhoods as y'all do for Blue. Ijs.

  • THE OLDER SISTAH

    You are probably right, from a marketing pov it is a goldmine but hopefully there are people out there like me who wouldn't consider watching this show based on that joke alone. It's probably petty of me and I really think I have a sense of humor. I lurk on this blog and crack up all day. Lol. That joke was in poor taste and over the top.

  • THE OLDER SISTAH

    I "go hard" for all children.

  • Canary Red™

    OMG I swear I just THOUGHT what u said, even before I read your comment. Idk why either, bc that 'thought' has NEVER ran through my head. Huhmmmmmmm.....deep!

    But why would the FBI kill her after all these years???!!!!!!?!

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    "Why continue to give it attention "
    ^^^^
    Exactly. I don't entertain attention whores who crack vulgar jokes about children. They are giving her what she wants.

  • 88
  • 88

    I believe they killed her because at that time she was publicly pursuing FBI shill/agent Louis Farrakhan for his participation in the assassination of her husband Malcolm.

  • Tammie Reed

    and to think his fade was just right!

  • 1/8

    Being accused of a crime doesn't mean you're actually guilty.

    According to other reports, the girl was allegedly assaulted on 8/7/15, but the incident wasn't reported to police until 8/14/15. Why did it take a week to report the purported rape?

    Furthermore, a police spokesperson said authorities were never informed that the suspect's family sent a security guard, posing as a police officer, to the so-called victim's home.

    In most cases, impersonating a police officer is a crime. Why didn't the victim's family tell authorities about the Mandelas' alleged attempt to interfere with a police investigation?

    The restaurant where this alleged rape occurred, has eight security cameras, but the cameras only hold 120 hours of footage... which means by the time the cops were notified, valuable evidence was lost.

    I wouldn't be surprised if this story has something to do with the $300k the suspect inherited from Mandela.

  • Renee Bee

    I guess because the show Difficult People is on Hulu, they feel they could get away with more shyt than if it was on network tv. Amy Poehler is a mother and a writer/producer. How many people co-signed this bullshyt joke before it made it to the scene? Nothing accounts for poor taste.

  • maleorderside

    I swear Americans would die if you watched British comedy. This joke would be classified as PG in the UK. More lame American outrage :/

    hahahahahahhahahaha

  • suganspice68

    They both are mothers and are old enough to know better than to make jokes about a child,they lose my respect.it's a shame that they are jealous of Blue Ivy because her parents are black multi millionaires.

  • suganspice68

    I didn't know that Winnie was about that life.

  • 1/8

    Something just occurred to me.

    After being "raped" and rejoining her family, no one suspected anything was wrong? No bruises? No tears? No torn clothes or disheveled appearance? No look of distress on her face?

    When I was a kid, a neighborhood girl knocked on our door after she was sexually assaulted.

    Her clothes weren't torn and there weren't any bruises, but the unmistakable look of trauma was all over her face.

    I find it hard to believe a child was raped and yet, she had the inner strength to remain composed after being attacked in a bathroom.

  • BLOODBLOOD

    Wow wtf!!!

  • Dee

    15 in a bar? Out of 17 grandchildren, the world is lucky if even 1 was 1/4 of the man Mandela was.

  • Dee

    LOL!!!!

  • eljjai

    Please do not affiliate Mandela's greatness with his family in any way.

  • WHITTYwithWORDS

    I never liked Winnie...

  • Canary Red™

    Gotcha!!!!!

  • Li

    Everybody should see the movie, Winnie. If that's her grandson then the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. In the beginning Winnie was a smart shy schoolgirl and married Mandella who was older. When he was imprisoned she took over the movement and in the process became a thug. She was tried as a criminal and I believe imprisoned.

    Please direct me to this new British comedy show as I grew up watching it and their jokes were usually high brow and witty.
