Mbuso Mandela’s maintenance case was postponed on Tuesday, in the Johannesburg Family Court after he asked for a paternity test.

Mandela, the 26-year-old grandson of late former president Nelson Mandela, was arrested in January for failing to support his daughter.

The paternity test is expected to take place on Wednesday in the Johannesburg Family Court.

Reports suggested that Mandela inherited R4 million from his grandfather’s estate.

On Tuesday, he made his second appearance at the Family Court, and refused to speak to African News Agency (ANA) when asked for a comment.

After the matter was postponed, Gugu Keswa, who has a three-year-old daughter with Mandela, told ANA that Mandela asked for a paternity test and she did not object. She said she wanted what was best for her daughter.

“I did not dispute to Mbuso’s request for paternity tests, however, my only grievances while we are going through with this process what is going to happen to the child. What is the child going to eat over this four weeks,” Keswa said.

“My daughter’s school fees are in arrears and there are some other things that needs to be paid for.”

The case has been postponed to March 31.
