She was the youngest daughter of Nelson Mandela and Nomzamo Winnie Madikizela.
In 1977 Madikizela-Mandela was banished to Brandfort, then in the Orange Free State, and Zindzi moved with her, taking her out of her normal life. "She served South Africa well", she said.
"My sincerest condolences also go to Dr Shorty Moola's family".
"Zindzi Mandela was a household name nationally and internationally, who during our years of struggle brought home the inhumanity of the apartheid system and the unshakeable resolve of our fight for freedom".
