Criminal charges have been laid against Nelson Mandela's grandson Mandla over the alleged exhumation and reburial of three of the former president's children, Eastern Cape police have confirmed.
Nelson Mandela's eldest daughter Makaziwe and 16 other Mandela family members were last week granted an order compelling Mandla Mandela to return the remains to Qunu.
The remains were those of Mandla Mandela's father Makgatho Mandela, who died in 2005; Mandela's first daughter Makaziwe, who died as an infant in 1948; and Mandela's second son Madiba Thembekile, who died in a car accident in 1969.
Mandela relatives claim Mandla had not sought permission nor informed the family he had moved the graves.
