Nelson Mandela’s eldest grandson was convicted of assault in a South African court on Tuesday following an alleged road-rage incident in 2013, reported a section of South African press.
Mandla Mandela, who is current Member of Parliament had been charged with assault and brandishing a gun at another man.
The younger Mandela is also a traditional chief in the Eastern Cape village of Mvezo where his famous grandfather Nelson Mandela was born.
South African media said at the time the younger Mandela was reported to have drawn a gun on a 44-year-old teacher whose vehicle had collided with one driven by a guest of Mandla Mandela’s. The teacher later had to undergo emergency surgery to remove a blood clot from his brain, newspapers said.
Mandla will face sentencing at a date yet to be announced.
