BEVERLY HILLS, July 16, (THEWILL) – Daughter of former South African President and Nobel Peace Prize winner, Nelson Mandela, Zindzi Mandela, tested positive for Coronavirus the day she died, her son, Zondwa Mandela, said.
Zondwa told South Africa’s public broadcaster, SABC, that the deceased South African Ambassador to Denmark, did not die from her COVID-19 infection.
“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,” he said.
THEWILL reports that the Zindzi died on Monday on South Africa.
