Zoleka Mandela is a South African writer, activist popularly known as the grand daughter of Nelson Mandela. Fully committed to her role as a mother; breast cancer survivor and road safety activists, Zoleka Mandela’s life is a story she believes will change many lives.
The unexpected and tragic loss of two of her children; Zenani Mandela (June 11th 2010) and Zenawe Mandela (June 23rd 2011) surpassed her early breast cancer diagnosis (March 15th 2012) catapulting her from a journey of pain and struggle to hope, faith and inspiration.
As a product of two legendary icons; former President of South Africa Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela and freedom fighter, Nomzamo Winfred Madikizela Mandela, Zoleka’s social responsibility is tremendously inspired by her grandparents and their passion to bring about change.
She envisions the awareness of breast cancer and road safety as by no means an obstacle on her road to extending her project work in South Africa but merely as preparation on her personal journey to counter act the lives lost due to road carnage and breast cancer
