Zindzi Mandela, the daughter of South African anti-apartheid leaders Nelson and Winnie Mandela, tested positive for coronavirus the day she died.

Her son Zondwa Mandela today revealed his mother did have the disease - but it may not be what caused her death aged 59 in Johannesburg on Monday.

Zindzi is the world’s highest profile victim of coronavirus, which has killed more than 4,400 people in South Africa alone.

Her son Zondwa Mandela told state broadcaster SABC: '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.'

Zindzi Mandela, the daughter of South African anti-apartheid leaders Nelson and Winnie Mandela, died on Monday morning in hospital.

Zindzi rose to international prominence when she read out Nelson Mandela's rejection of then-president P.W. Botha's offer for freedom in 1985.

The white minority government offered to release Nelson Mandela from prison if he denounced violence perpetrated by his movement, the Africa National Congress, against apartheid.

She read his letter rejecting the offer at a packed public meeting which was broadcast around the world.

The 59-year-old was serving as South Africa's ambassador to Denmark.
