Mandela family lawyer cleared

THE Cape Law Society has dismissed an allegation of misconduct against an Eastern Cape lawyer who claimed Nelson Mandela was in a permanent vegetative state prior to his death last year.

The society’s disciplinary committee said it could not find that Mandela family lawyer Wesley Hayes had acted unprofessionally.

The complaint was lodged by the former statesman’s eldest grandson, Mandla, following a highly publicised bitter court battle in the Mthatha High Court in June last year. – Kathryn Kimberley
