Zindzi Mandela, the daughter of anti-apartheid leaders Nelson and Winnie Mandela, tested positive for COVID-19 on the day she died, her son Zondwa Mandela told South Africa’s public broadcaster, SABC, Wednesday.

According to reports, Zindzi who was South Africa’s ambassador to Denmark, tested positive for the disease but it wasn’t confirmed that she died from it.

Speaking with SABC, Zondwa Mandela 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.”

He added: “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.”
