CAPE TOWN - The granddaughter of Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu is expected to hand herself over to police on Friday.

Ziyanda Tutu is to face an undisclosed criminal charge.

In a statement issued on Thursday, the Arch confirmed he had laid a charge against his granddaughter.

The 30-year-old this week posted several comments on social media, which speaks to the matter, but also fails to divulge any further information about the charge.

Ziyanda announced on Twitter she will be handing herself over on Friday.
