Zoleka Mandela remembers her late daughter 10 years after her passing
Previously, News Briefly wrote about Zoleka Mandela when she took the time to pay a tribute to her late daughter, Zenani Mandela, 10 years after her untimely passing.
Zenani was tragically killed in a drunk driving accident during the 2010 FIFA World Cup, which was hosted in South Africa. Zoleka was devastated to lose her daughter, who would have been 23 this year. The author expressed how not a single day goes by without thinking about her beautiful late daughter.
Since it has now been a decade since her death, Zoleka took the time to plead with South Africans not to drink and drive.
She is appealing to the government to take more action when dealing with people who get behind the wheel when they are intoxicated.
