Nelson Mandela Foundation has reported the sudden demise of Winnie and Zindzi, the youngest daughter of Nelson Mandela of South Africa.
The 59 years old deceased, who from 2015, became a South African Ambassador to Denmark, met her untimely death at Johannesburg hospital.
The cause of her death has not yet been disclosed but the foundation has indicated that it would be revealed at the right time.
She became well known internationally, in 1985, after she brought to light, a letter written by her father, Nelson Mandela, which caused a rejection of a deal with the South African apartheid government.
She left behind, four lovely kids, Zoleka, Zondwa, Bambatha and Zwelabo and her husband Molapo.
Check some tributes written amid her demise
Life is so transient. Here now, just now, then gone! Reeling over the passing of Zindzi Mandela. She was so gracious in writing a quote for my new book. We always joked that I was her sister. Condolences to the entire family. RIPower #ZindziMandela pic.twitter.com/OEBSZQ2OJQ

Rest in Power, Queen Zindzi Mandela. Defending the legacy of parents whilst pathing your own is not an easy task. A lot was stolen. Your name is power, boldness, grace truth and love. You will not be erased. Rest easy ma 🙏🏾 pic.twitter.com/Gz6RQDWroo
