In this photo taken at the weekend, Nelson Mandela, 95, sits holding his great-grandson, Zen Manaway, 1, at home in Johannesburg.

Zen, the youngest in the Mandela family, is travelling in the US with his mother Zaziwe Dlamini-Manaway and his aunt Swati Dlamini, as the sisters promote their new reality TV series, “Being Mandela”, produced by COZI TV for NBC.

The 30-minute weekly show will follow the next generation of the Mandela family through the experiences of sisters Zaziwe and Swati and their families. Picture: AP
