Nelson Mandela's grandson, and business partner of President Jacob Zuma's nephew, Khulubuse Zuma, appeared in the Randburg Magistrate's Court yesterday on charges of speeding.
Zondwa Mandela, CEO of embattled mining company Aurora Empowerment Systems, was allegedly caught driving at 158km an hour in a residential area in Fairland, Johannesburg, on Saturday night.
He was released the same night on R1000 bail by the Traffic Offences Court.
The businessman was smartly dressed in a blue and white striped shirt and a blue suit when he made his first court appearance.
He is also the director of a Johannesburg branding and marketing company.
The court heard that photographs of Mandela's car were already in the docket.
Mandela's attorney, Sello Baloyi, said his client would plead not guilty.
"We are going to challenge that," he said.
The case was postponed to May 20 for further investigation.
