Police on the hunt for Mandla Mandela

EASTERN Cape police are on the hunt for Mandla Mandela, for evading arrest.

A warrant was issued for his arrest last Friday, after he failed to appear in court on two charges of bigamy.

Then, yesterday, Mandela again failed to report to the Bityi police station.

Station commander Lieutenant-Colonel N Ngame has now written to police in Goodwood, Cape Town, asking them to serve the warrant at his address in the Acacia Park parliamentary village or to arrest him on sight.

". it has become crystal clear that this person is evading justice," Ngame said.

It is understood that Mandela, an ANC MP, is in Cape Town, where parliament resumes work today.

Both police and the National Prosecuting Authority have denied the warrant, but the Daily Dispatch is in possession of a copy.

Speaking on behalf of the Mandela family, attorney Gary Jansen said: "These are legal matters, not media matters, and they are taking their legal course."

Mandela was unavailable for comment.

Mandela's estranged first wife, Tando Mabunu-Mandela, laid charges of bigamy after he defied the court to marry a second and third woman. Both marriages have since been annulled.

Mabunu-Mandela's attorney Wesley Hayes said it has been a constant battle to get Mandela to cooperate.

"Mr Mandela seems to think he is above the law," Hayes said yesterday.

No. He only got the title and the ownership after they were already married.

Wth a warrent of arrest in hand , the Police would go to an odinary South African at 2h00 am and kick the door into piesses. They would throw the poor soul in the cell and stay there for 24hours before appearing in court.

Why do these idiots always DENY! DENY! DENY! when the media already has all the proof they need?

It makes no difference
When they got married, Mandla had nothing. His wifle was actually supporting HIM. If you have a prenup then it only relates to what you bring into the marriage. Anything acquired during the marriage is in community of property. If Mandla had made a prenup then he would owe her even more
