Mandela's son-in-law gets R500 000 bail
Johannesburg - An Interpol spokesperson said on Monday that bail had been granted for the son-in-law of former South African president Nelson Mandela.
Isaac Amuah, a former professor at Manchester Community Technical College, turned himself in to South African police on Monday, and was granted bail of R500 000.
Amuah had left Connecticut 12 years ago while facing sexual assault charges. He strongly denies all charges.
Amuah is accused of sexually assaulting a 34-year-old student inside the professor's Manchester flat in 1993.
He was given permission to travel to South Africa for the holidays in 1993 and never returned.
Amuah is married to Mandela's oldest daughter, Makaziwe, who was present at the bail hearing.
Interpol's Tummi Shai says Amuah has been very co-operative. His next court appearance is set for February 11.
