Mandla Mandela, the grandson of former South African president Nelson Mandela, reportedly converted to Islam about 2 months ago.
He married a Muslim woman, Rabia Clarke, this weekend in Cape Town. “I wish to extend my heartfelt gratitude to Rabia’s parents, her extended family and the Muslim community, for welcoming me into their hearts,” Mandela said in a statement.
“Although Rabia and I were raised in different cultural and religious traditions, our coming together reflects what we have in common: We are South Africans,” he said. — Courtesy of African Spotlight
