Zindziswa 'Zindzi' Mandela has passed away suddenly aged 59-years-old according to the Nelson Mandela Foundation.
The daughter of struggle veterans Nelson Mandela and Winnie Madikizela-Mandela had served as an SA ambassador to Denmark.
Mandela leaves behind four children and her husband. Zindzi was a political activist and helped fight the oppressive apartheid regime.
Previously, Briefly.co.za reported that Zindzi had gotten some tongues wagging after posing with top EFF officials ahead of the most recent elections.
It is well-known that Economic Freedom Fighters leader Julius Malema had shared a close bond with Zindzi's late mother.
After the situation had gone viral, Mandela had clapped back over her right to freedom:
"I don't flirt with EFF South Africa I have deep, pure unconditional love and respect for Julius Malema and that won't stop. Mandela Legacy? Are you talking about both my parents who loved and respected CIC?"
This is a developing situation and more information will be added once it becomes available.
