According to CNN, Zindzi is the youngest daughter to Nelson and Winnie Mandela, and the department of International Relations is still gathering information about the cause of her death.
“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,” Naledi Pandor, Minister of International Relations said in a statement. The department also said the investigation into her death is still on going and a detailed statement will be released later.
According to a statement from the office of President Cyril Ramaphosa, Zindzi died early Monday morning at a Johannesburg hospital.
“I offer my deepest 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 a 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”
All prayers to the Mandela Family
