Mandelas send French wife home after affair

2012-08-15 08:45

Port Elizabeth - The French wife of Mandla Mandela has been sent home after it was found that she had been having an affair with one of Mandla’s brothers.

The Star reported that Mandla, one of Nelson Mandela grandsons, said in a statement that the family had sent Nkosikazi Nobubele Mandela (née Anais Grimaud) home after the affair which resulted in a child born in 2011.

Nkosikazi Mandela is from Reunion.

A DNA test apparently confirmed that the child was not fathered by Mandla Mandela who said he was shocked to find out the truth about his wife’s son.

The couple got married in 2010 and the baby was born in 2011.  

The child had apparently been named by Nelson Mandela.

    a new meaning to french roll

      procold2 - 2012-08-15 09:13

      nonsense news but heres my 5 cents,he cant perform and she being french and all needed satisfaction, she was so horny forgot all abount safe sex and found the brother willing sh4t happens,cant have more than one partner or these things will happen.

      Did they send her a french letter to tell her she must go? - 2012-08-15 09:55

      what a horny bunch of idiots and is it not funny that a picture of Zipper should come with this story he he he wonder if he is not the father?

      Junebugg - 2012-08-15 10:00

      How long will it take for polygamist to realize that they dont make women like they use to, now they read playboy,True Love,watch desperate house wives, they got porn..They wanna try everything they read, watch or hear... If you cannot satisfy 5 women , why take all of them?? coz if you dont they will get it else where , ask Zuma about Mantuli, Mswati about his wives running away and cheating on him with dude who is old enough to be his father...however I have nothing against polygamy if you can satisfy all 10 of your wives with everything they need: emotionally, sexually and financially

      themba.thwala.98 - 2012-08-15 10:16

      Voice you are probably right; Zipper could be the dad. Considering that he appointed Mandla as a Member of Parliament, but Mandla hardly goes to work for his salary in Cape Town where Parliament sits, Zipper wanted to teach him a lesson :)

      rob.gunning.1 - 2012-08-15 10:34

      Mind my French but... What a slut!

      andre.vandeventer.16 - 2012-08-15 14:02

      She should have used a French letter!

      alon.fisher.752 - 2012-08-15 14:53

      hahaha Preshen, you made my day. :-)

      Just had my laugh for the week. Pity I only saw this now. Its hilarious.

  • minenhle.ndebele.7 - 2012-08-15 09:00

    if he can have more than one wife, why not her having more than one partner?

      lsfreak - 2012-08-15 09:05

      Cause this is Africa and woman aren't ment to have rights ;)

      ally.oh.7 - 2012-08-15 12:46

      Excellent question.

      Rudolf - 2012-08-15 16:16

      Isfreak; it seems only black women are not supposed to have 'rights', black men can 'work' as many woman through as they want, but more than 1 man for a "mandela women" and you get sent back home. Ironic this "african" way of thinking...

      fidel.mgoqi - 2012-08-15 18:06

      It is a man's prerogative to spread sperm!

      Rudolf - 2012-08-17 15:31

      Uh, and aids

  • tebo.go.5 - 2012-08-15 09:03

    I dont know how this even makes NEWS

      maseratifittipaldi - 2012-08-15 21:39

      This is making history. The Mandelas made this lady a modern French Yougonow.

  • al.chemist.7106 - 2012-08-15 09:04

    He seems to be more upset about his wife, but what about his brother who she had the affair with?

      ally.oh.7 - 2012-08-15 12:48

      His brother is a Mandela too and it is not right to diss your bro ...

  • Erna - 2012-08-15 09:12

    Why on earth would this be news? There's enough happening in SA for us not to read this rubbish.

      dmotlhoki - 2012-08-15 10:44

  • veldt66 - 2012-08-15 09:46

    This Mandela guy is always in the news for all the wrong reasons, But this story has got to be the best one. According to ancient Xhosa tradition which i belive is stll being practiced though at a much smaller scale. If one of the brothers in the family was infertile or suffered erectile issues, one the brothers was expected to step in and keep it in the family. I think thats what happened in this case.

  • Ze Don - 2012-08-15 09:58

    Correct me if I'm wrong here. If the brothers have the same parents, how can they say with 100% certainty which of them fathered the child? If they don't have the same parents it becomes easy...

      Jane - 2012-08-15 15:45

      Janine.filmer, Identical twins DO NOT have identical DNA. No two people in the world have identical DNA, that is why it can be used in court

      DPMGG - 2012-08-15 16:15

      Easy, Mandla Mandela is infertile, that's according to his first wife in her court application. Its in the newspapers

  • juannepierre - 2012-08-15 10:50

    At least she kept it in the family

  • molly.dentdavies - 2012-08-15 10:53

    If this story is true it is a very sad day for my friend Rene, her son Mandla and the Mandela family. For those of you 'throwing' stones, it is quite acceptable for a 'Chief' as Mandla is to have more than one wife.

      zimbobwe.mugabe - 2012-08-15 10:58

      @Molly and it is quite acceptable when a man shoots blanks(infertile) to have a brother shooting some little soldiers on his behalf. It's an African way and acceptable to most traditionalist.The first wife stated in court that this palloka has rubbish blanks in his trousers.

      don.quioxte.3 - 2012-08-15 11:43

      Quite acceptable to fornicate like rabbits with as many women as possible and create as many offspring as possible and to hell with everything else for we are African. Yes, we know that already. That is just one of the reasons why we can never be part of the 1st world.

      zimbobwe.mugabe - 2012-08-15 12:01

      It's up to you don you can choose to be part of the first world and not fornicate like rabbits or you can go the zoomer or rubbish blank's way. It's your choice and nobody is forcing you to give up your wife...

      themba.thwala.98 - 2012-08-15 13:28

      Why are you turning this into a racial issue? Have you forgotten that we also Steve Hofmeyr representing AFRICAN whites? What about Joost vd Westenhuizen`s fornication? Eugene Terblanche with his green underpants with holes on top of Jenny Allen while he was married? FW stealing his friend`s Greek wife? My point is: don't throw stones if you leave in an equally fragile glass house

      pisciotta - 2012-08-15 20:47

      Molly bet you'd just love to be in line for that.

  • christopher.m.lowe - 2012-08-15 12:08

    Charming. A small but important point. Mandla's wife is NOT French. She's from Reunion. There's a big difference.

      marike.colyn - 2012-08-15 12:32

      Sorry, Christopher, but seeing as Reunion is a department (a type of province) of France, she is French...

    I am devastated. Excuse me if Zuma can have multiple wives then why cannot this girl have multiple husbands.

  • - 2012-08-15 14:26

    Her agenda has been thwarted. She probably wanted to sleep with all males in the family. The Mandela men have made bad choices in the past. It started with one woman named Winnie.

    Her French name is more pleasing. No loss to her, France kicks Africa's ass.

    Mandla is not just the first guy in Transkei to have European wife. He's also the first to hook up with a french slut

  • julian.knight.7 - 2012-08-15 21:18

    If our President has 5 wives more than 20 children and a string of lovers, I honestly can’t see what the problem is. She has one fling with her hubby’s brother and everyone gets upset and she must go home.

  • foreignem - 2012-08-16 08:30

    This calls for Mandla to go back to his first wife and make permanent peace. I will stick to my one wife, who knows and tolerates my weaknesses and strengths as I do of hers.

  • michael.barnard.771 - 2012-08-16 08:50

    Is this a first world country with modern values??? Misbehave and you get banished like in medieval times??!!! We must be the laughing stock of the rest of the world!

  • grant.montgomery.5074 - 2012-08-16 10:06

    I believe the people have been duped. The report says "aparently" DNA tests proved... The first wife said Mandla was infertile. If he is, why did he not realise his wife had been impregnated by someone else when she started to swell? She was reportedly sent home by the Mandelas. If she didn't want to leave, she would have to have been deported and sleeping around is not grounds for deportation. No mention about where the child is.
