NELSON Mandela’s daughter Zindzi has died at the age of 59.
Ms Mandela was serving as the South African ambassador to Denmark when she died on Sunday night at a hospital in Johannesburg.
She is survived by her four children Zoleka, Zondwa, Bambatha and Zwelabo and her husband Molapo.
Her death was confirmed by the family, with Bambatha posting a photo of his late mother on Instagram.
Her son posted the caption “Lala ngo xolo Madlomo”, which translates to English as “Sleep in peace Madam”.
Details of her cause of death are currently unclear.
Ms Mandela’s father died in December 2013, while her mother Winnie Madikizela-Mandela passed away in April 2018.
She was just 18-months-old when her dad was sent to prison – where he remained until 1990.
Some of her childhood was spent being raised by her older sister Zenani as her mother also served time in prison.
She followed in her family’s political footsteps, including temporarily serving as the nation’s First Lady following her father’s election and her parents’ divorce.
Zindzi studied law at the University of Cape Town and is also a published poet with the book Black as I am.
