Nelson Mandela’s GrandSon, Mandla Reportedly Converts To Islam

The Muslim cleric who performed the wedding ceremony of Nelson Mandela’s grandson Mandla Mandela yesterday, says the 42-year-old converted to Islam last year, South Africa’s private IOL news site reports.

“I can say that it was an honour for me to perform the marriage ceremony for the grandson of our great leader Nelson Mandela,” said Sheikh Ebrahim Gabriels, who performed the ceremony at a mosque in Cape Town on Saturday.
IOL reports that the cleric would not be drawn on the dowry paid by Mr Mandela, saying only that it had been “agreed between the husband and wife”.

Mr Mandela – an MP and a traditional ruler – has not yet commented on his faith.
