Mbuso Mandela, the grandson of late president Nelson Mandela has admitted to abusing his girlfriend in an Instagram live feed.
The video features Mbuso admitting to the abuse.
“My name is Mbuso Mandela. I am a woman abuser. I put my girlfriend’s head through the window and through the Trellidor. I strangled her, she needs me to admit it, so I am admitting it in front of everybody, to everybody. Thank you,” Mandela said in the video he shared.
In another video, a woman who is believed to be Mbuso’s partner said that the abuse never happened.
In the video, the woman said “I get why he posted that because in our angry little fight we had (I) called his bluff and said he will never try and ruin his reputation and it was wrong, I admit that completely.
As you can see, there are no bruises, my face is fine. Not too sure where he has hit my head through a Trellidor, because (I’m) pretty sure it will be swollen.”
The video has sparked outrage on social media and was shared by Graca Machel’s daughter Josina, an activist against gender-based violence. Graca Machel was married to Nelson Mandela at the time of his death.
