Zindzi Mandela Dies At The Age of 59

Its has come as a shock to most South Africans, and the rest of the world when we heard of the passing of SA’s loved ‘Child Of The Nation’, Zindzi Mandela.

It was reported that Zindzi died on Monday, early morning at a Johannesburg hospital as per statement from President Cyril Ramaphosa’s office.

Zindzi Mandela was Nelson and Winnie Mandela’s youngest daughter and Ambassador to Denmark.

“Zindzi will not only be remembered as a daughter of our struggle heroes, Tata Nelson and Mama Winnie Mandela, but as a struggle heroine in her own right. She served South Africa well,” Said Naledi Pandor, Minister of International Relations.

The statement said that the premier is “deeply saddened” by her death.

“I offer my deep condolences to the Mandela family as we mourn the passing of a fearless political activist who was a leader in her own right,” Ramaphosa said in the statement.

“Our sadness is compounded by this loss being visited upon us just days before the world marks the birthday of the great Nelson Mandela.”

The Desmond & Leah Tutu Legacy Foundation has also released a statement mourning Zindzi Mandela’s death.

She was “regarded by many as a child of the nation,” the foundation said in a statement, and her death means “South Africa loses an important generational link connecting our divided history to the promise of better, more inclusive, tomorrows.”
