Zoleka Mandela has recently opened up about how she has been dealing with her mother’s(Zindzi Mandela- Hlongwane) death. Zoleka’s mother Zindzi was a South African diplomat and poet, and daughter of the late Nelson Mandela and Winnie Madikizela-Mandela.

Zoleka’s mother was the youngest and the third of Nelson Mandela’s three daughters, including sister Zenani Mandela. In an Instagram post Zoleka wrote a heartbreaking post on how she has been dealing with her mothers death and her gratitude to those who reached out.

“Walking, I’m listening to a deeper way. Suddenly, all my ancestors are behind me. Be still, they say. Watch and listen. You are the result of the love of thousands.” – Linda Hogan … “, (sic).

“Thanking the thousands that reached out, a reminder that love is indeed, the most compelling and connecting force. That even I, am never alone for raindrops never, ever fall alone! Today, I feel an overwhelming sense of gratitude and reassurance. Thanking you all from the bottom of my heart and through to the very top!!!,” she wrote.

Zoleka is the oldest daughter of the late Zindzi, who passed away this year in July and it was reported that she died a sudden death in hospital at the age of 59. Zindzi is best remembered for her defiance, which she retained throughout her life, most recently voicing her support for accelerated land reform.

Her notable early raid into the spotlight in her own right was when she read her jailed father’s speech at the Jabulani Stadium in Soweto, February 1985, where she was rejecting the then president PW Botha’s conditional offer of freedom.

We certainly hope that Zoleka will recover from the passing of her mother even though it is still a fresh wound.
