Zoleka Mandela, granddaughter of South Africa’s first democratically elected president, Nelson Mandela, has died of cancer at the age of 43, her family has announced.

In a statement on Instagram, a spokesperson said that Zoleka passed away on Monday evening surrounded by friends and family.

Just over a decade ago, Zoleka had been diagnosed with breast cancer, she received treatment and was in remission but it later returned.
