Nelson Mandela"s Daughter Zindzi Dies at 59

Zindzi Mandela, the youngest daughter of South Africa's first black president Nelson Mandela and anti-apartheid activist Winnie Madikizela-Mandela, has died at the age of 59.
She died in a Johannesburg hospital in the early hours of Monday morning, public broadcaster SABC said.
She was an activist in her own right and was serving as ambassador to Denmark at the time of her death.
The cause of her death was not immediately revealed.
Zindzi Mandela was Nelson Mandela's sixth child and his second with Winnie Madikizela-Mandela, his second wife.
President Cyril Ramaphosa in a statement said Zindzi Mandela had "during our years of struggle brought home the inhumanity of the apartheid system and the unshakeable resolve of our fight for freedom".
Ms Mandela had been posted to Denmark in 2015 and had been designated to become South Africa's head of mission in Monrovia, Liberia.
Minister of International Relations Naledi Pandor said: "Zindzi will not only be remembered as a daughter of our struggle heroes, but as a struggle heroine in her own right."
