Zenani Mandela case postponed

2010-11-05 08:56

The case against Sizwe Mankazana, the man accused of killing former president Nelson Mandela’s great-granddaughter in a car crash, was postponed by the Johannesburg Magistrate’s Court today.

The case against Mankazana was postponed until November 24 to allow the state to supply the necessary reports to the defence team. He faces charges of drunk driving and culpable homicide.

Thirteen-year-old Zenani Mandela died in a car crash after the Fifa World Cup opening concert at the FNB Stadium (Soccer City) in Soweto.

Zenani was the great-granddaughter of Nelson Mandela and the granddaughter of Zindzi Mandela, the daughter of struggle veteran Winnie Madikizela-Mandela.

Mankazana is the son of Zwelakhe Mankazana, who is the partner of Zenani Mandela-Dlamini.
