Speaking to the SABC on Thursday, her son Zondwa Mandela confirmed that his mother’s final resting place is next to that of her own mother, anti-apartheid icon Winnie Madikizela-Mandela who died in 2018.

Earlier this week, Zondwa also revealed that his mother had tested positive for Covid-19 on the day of her passing.

However, the family was still waiting for the autopsy report that will clarify what the exact cause of death was.

The 59-year-old passed away at a Johannesburg hospital on Monday.
