Madiba's grandson, Mandla Mandela, has appointed a new legal team and now has the same lawyer as murder-accused paralympic athlete Oscar Pistorius.

Former president Nelson Mandela’s grandson, Mandla Mandela, has appointed a new legal team and now has the same lawyer as murder-accused paralympic athlete Oscar Pistorius.

Mandla Mandela recently arrived at the Mthatha regional court accompanied by Kenny Oldwage of the Wadee legal firm.

In 2012 Oldwage successfully defended Sizwe Mankazana after Nelson Mandela’s 13-year-old great-granddaughter Zenani died in a car crash Mankazana had been responsible for.

Mandla Mandela is charged with assaulting teacher Mlamli Ngudle in October last year after Ngudle had crashed into a car belonging to a friend of Mandela. Mandla allegedly pointed a pistol at Ngudle, who had to undergo an emergency operation to remove a bloodclot from his brain, TimesLive reports.

The case was postponed to 24 February.
