Condolences to the family of Zindzi Mandela

On my own behalf and on behalf of the Anglican Church of Southern Africa, we send our condolences to the family of Ambassador Zindzi Mandela upon her untimely death.

She was one of the icons of our struggle and I personally recall her appearance at Jabulani Stadium in 1985 when, during a celebration of Archbishop Tutu's Nobel Peace Prize, she memorably delivered a message from Madiba in prison in which he refused an offer of conditional release and declared "I shall return".

Our prayers ascend for her and her family, including her "second mother", Graca Machel, and we pray that they may experience God's consolation in their sad loss.     

Archbishop Thabo Makgoba
