Zindzi Mandela – the daughter of Nelson and Winnie Mandela – died in the early hours of July 13 in a Johannesburg hospital. She was South Africa’s ambassador to Denmark and a spokesman for DIRCO said she was the second to die in the pandemic.
Zindzi grew up with her father in prison for most of her life and was a staunch activist. In 1985 she famously told the world that her father had rejected PW Botha’s offer of freedom.

“This is untimely. She still had a role to play in the transformation of our own society and a bigger role to play even in the African National Congress,” said ANC spokesman Pule Mabe.
