JOHANNESBURG - The royal house of Mandela says that those implicated in the misuse of funds during former President Nelson Mandela’s funeral should face the might of the law.

Last week, Public Protector Busiswe Mkhwebane released findings of a report showing that money was misappropriated during the funeral in 2013.

In a statement, the former stateman’s grandson Mandla Mandela says the royal house is shocked at the allegations of corruption in the Public Protector’s report.

He says its worrying that while the family and the world were morning the loss of the former president, some people were allegedly planning to profit from his send off.

Mandela says that this must be tested and tried in court and those found guilty should be duly charged.
