Nelson Mandela’s great-granddaughter Zenani Mandela was killed in a car crash yesterday.
The 13 year old was on the way home from the World Cup kick off concert when the accident happened.
Johannesburg Metro police spokeswoman Edna Mamonyane disclosed that the driver of the car had been arrested and charged with drunk driving.
Mandela and his family were “torn up” by the accident, the foundation added.
It’s been also reported that Nelson’s former wife Winnie Mandela was treated for shock at a hospital after being informed of the accident and the death of her great-granddaughter.
She has since been discharged.
Rest In Peace Zenani Mandela
