Mthatha - A police docket containing evidence of alleged grave tampering by Nelson Mandela's grandson Mandla Mandela was handed to prosecutors in Mthatha on Tuesday afternoon.

A decision on whether to prosecute Mandla would be made this week, National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) spokesperson Luxolo Tyali said.

"The senior public prosecutor at the magistrate's court in Mthatha will look at the content of the docket and will make a decision based on that," Tyali said.

"We expect that decision to be made within the week."

Mandla, 39, admitted to exhuming the remains of three of the former president's children in 2011 in Qunu and moving them to Mvezo, where he is chief.

The remains were exhumed in Mvezo on Wednesday following an order by the Eastern Cape High Court in Mthatha.

They were reburied at Mandela's home in Qunu on Thursday.

The court order came after an application against Mandla by 15 members of the Mandela family, including Mandela's wife Graça Machel.

Mandela has expressed his wish to be buried with his children at his rural homestead at Qunu.

He is currently in a critical but stable condition in a hospital in Pretoria.
