Nelson Mandela’s grandson, Ndaba Mandela, touched down in Barbados earlier today.

This is his first visit to the Caribbean and he said he was looking forward to all the island had to offer.

He will visit with Prime Minister Mia Mottley tomorrow and attend Buju Banton’s Long Walk to Freedom concert on Saturday night.

He leaves on Sunday. (DB)
