Pretoria - The grandson of former president Nelson Mandela is expected to appear in the Johannesburg Magistrate's Court on Monday for allegedly raping a teenager.

The 24-year-old was granted R7 000 bail in August after spending over a week in jail.

He allegedly raped the teenager on August 7 at a restaurant in Greenside, Johannesburg. In her affidavit, the victim claimed the accused had forcefully kissed her, put his hands in her pants and raped her.

The 24-year-old disputed this, claiming in his affidavit the sex was consensual and that he had no idea she was under age. He claimed the pub where they had met did not allow entry to people under the age of 21.

The girl was also drinking and smoking, it was alleged, adding to the perception that she was older.

A chef from the pub handed in an affidavit claiming the pair were making out in the passageway of the pub.
