KINGSTON, Jamaica - A bitter family feud exploded nastily into the public domain, with Nelson Mandela's grandson accusing his own brother of impregnating his wife.
In a press conference, Mandla Mandela said he did not want to air the family's dirty linen, but then proceeded to talk about adultery within the family and lashed out at Mandela family members for taking him to court.
The Mandela family is embroiled in a bitter feud over the gravesites and final resting place of three of the anti-Apartheid leader's deceased children.
Mandla Mandela moved the bodies to his village of Mvezo — Nelson Mandela's birthplace — in 2011. 
Fifteen Mandela family members pursued court action last week to force the grandson to move the bodies back to their original burial site.
"My grandfather like myself would be highly disappointed in what is unravelling," Mandla, the eldest male Mandela heir and a tribal chief, told the news conference on Thursday.
