Zoleka Mandela, renowned as the granddaughter of Nelson Mandela, South Africa’s first democratically elected president, has tragically passed away at the age of 43 after a courageous battle with metastatic cancer.

Last Monday, she was admitted to the hospital for treatment but sadly succumbed to the disease on the eve of her grandmother’s birthday, surrounded by loved ones and friends.

A spokesperson for the family confirmed her passing in a heartfelt statement shared on Instagram on Monday evening.

Zoleka was well-known for her bravery in sharing her journey through cancer treatment and openly discussing her struggles with drug addiction, depression, and childhood sexual abuse.

Her remarkable story was penned in an autobiography called “When Hope Whispers.”

Over ten years ago, Zoleka faced a breast cancer diagnosis, underwent treatment, and achieved remission.

Tragically, the cancer returned last year, affecting her liver and lungs before spreading to other organs.

She remained optimistic, even while dealing with blood clots and fibrosis in her lungs, expressing gratitude for continued treatment options just days before her passing.
