Condolence Message of the Thabo Mbeki Foundation on the passing of Ambassador Zindzi Mandela.

The Board, the Council, the Patron, President Thabo Mbeki, and the Staff of the Thabo Mbeki Foundation received with shock and sadness the news that Ambassador Zindzi Mandela had passed away.

Amb Mandela’s untimely and unexpected passing has deprived our country of an activist for liberation, democracy and a better life for our people, who was destined to contribute further to the achievement of these goals.

The immense challenges thrown up by the Covid-19 pandemic emphasise the importance of the duty to pick up her fallen spear.

Quite correctly and fortunately, the media has made it a point to remind us of the contribution she made further to inspire the struggling masses of our people when she delivered at the Johannesburg Jabulani Amphitheatre in 1985, President Mandela’s Message from Prison.

We convey our condolences to her sister Zenani, her children and the rest of the Mandela and Madikizela families.

May she rest in eternal peace.

Issued by the Thabo Mbeki Foundation.

14 July 2020.
