The 59 year old died this past Sunday at a Johannesburg hospital. The news of her passing was confirmed by the Nelson Mandela Foundation this morning. The full details surrounding her death have not been released.
The late politician was serving as South Africa’s ambassador to Denmark. As the daughter of former President Nelson Mandela and Winnie Madikizela-Mandela, Zindzi played a role in anti- apartheid activism.
She held a BA in Law from the University of Cape Town. She leaves behind her four children (Zoleka Mandela, Zondwa Mandela, Bambatha Mandela, Zwelabo Mandela- Hlongwane), 4 grandchildren and her husband. May she rest in peace.
