Zindzi Mandela’s son reveals she tested positive for COVID-19 before her death

Zindzi Mandela, the youngest daughter of South Africa’s ex-president, Nelson Mandela, tested positive for coronavirus before she died.

Her son, Zondwa Mandela made this known while speaking with South Africa’s public broadcast station, SABC, on Thursday but didn’t state if it was what caused her death on Monday, July 13.

He said:” My mother did in fact test positive for COVID-19 on the day of her passing.

”Although, this doesn’t, therefore, mean that she died of COVID-related complications, but simply that she tested positive for it.

”Simply by the virtue that there was a positive test, we are, therefore, obligated to function and work within the framework of the existing regulation related to such cases.”

Recall that Zindzi, the daughter of Nelson and Winnie Mandela, died on Monday morning at a Johannesburg hospital.

The 59-year-old, before her death, was the South African Ambassador to Denmark.

She is survived by her husband and four children.
