Zindzi Mandela former South Africa’s Ambassador to Denmark and Nelson Mandela’s daughter dies

The daughter to former South Africa’s President Nelson Mandela has passed on at the age of 59 years.

The family of Zindzi confirmed her death on Monday morning. Currently, details surrounding the cause of her death remain scanty. She died at Johannesburg Hospital.

The deceased was born to Winnie Madikizela Mandela and NelsonMandela in Soweto, on December 23, 1960.

After her parents separated, she stood in the gap as South Africa’s first lady until her father remarried in 1998. In 2014, the President appointed Zindzi South Africa’s Ambassador to Denmark.

Her son Bambatha posted on his Instagram her photo with the caption “Lala ngo Xolo Madlomo.”

Following a contentious outburst on Twitter in 2019, the daughter to the “father of the nation” made headlines after calling out on Apartheid apologists. She sated their time in South Africa was over, and they’ll never hold the country’s reigns again.

Although she remained loyal to her father’s party African National Congress (ANC), Zindzi favored the ideologies of Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF).

Nelson Mandela passed away on December 5, 2013, and Zindzi’s mother, Winnie Madikizela Mandela, five years later, on April 2, 2018.

She leaves behind a husband and four children.
