Zindzi Mandela

She had been South Africa’s ambassador to Denmark since 2015.

The Mandelas’ daughter came to international prominence in 1985, when the white minority government offered to release Nelson Mandela from prison if he denounced violence perpetrated by his movement, the Africa National Congress, against apartheid, the brutal system of racial discrimination enforced in South Africa at that time.

Zindzi Mandela read his letter rejecting the offer at a packed public meeting that was broadcast around the world.

She is survived by her husband and four children.

  1. Wow! This blog looks just like my old one! It’s on a entirely different subject but it has pretty much the
    same layout and design. Excellent choice of colors!
    Hey there would you mind letting me know which web host you’re using?
    I’ve loaded your blog in 3 completely different browsers
    and I must say this blog loads a lot faster then most.
    Can you recommend a good internet hosting provider at
    a reasonable price? Cheers, I appreciate it!
    I have been surfing online more than 4 hours today,
    yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It is pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all site
    owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be
    a lot more useful than ever before. http://nissan.com/
