Police have confirmed that Nelson Mandela’s grandson Mbuso has been arrested and detained on thursday for failing to pay child support and faces a contempt of court charge.

He has been behind bars since Thursday, after a magistrate denied him bail, and is due back in court on Thursday,  19 January.

Recall that he was arrested also on charges of rape in 2015

According to a Sunday World report, the child’s mother has accused Mandela of squandering his R4-million inheritance from the struggle icon.
