NELSON MANDELA’S DAUGHTER ZINDZI DIES AT 59.

Zindzi Mandela, the daughter of South Africa’s anti-apartheid icons Nelson Mandela and Winnie Madikizela-Mandela, has died.

She died in Johannesburg on Monday morning aged 59.

The death has been confirmed by a family source.

She was the South African ambassador to Denmark at the time of her death. The cause of her death was not immediately revealed.

“The 59-year-old daughter of former president Nelson Mandela and struggle stalwart Winnie Madikizela-Mandela, passed away at a Johannesburg hospital in the early hours of this morning.

She was Nelson Mandela’s sixth child and his second with Winnie Madikizela-Mandela.

South Africa’s foreign affairs minister Naledi Pandor has expressed shock at Mandela’s death, describing her as a heroine.

“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 Pandor.

She is survived by her husband and four children
