SACC Saddened by Passing of Ms Zindzi Mandela Media Statement
13 July 2020
Issued by the office of the SACC General Secretary, Bishop Malusi Mpumlwana.
The South African Council of Churches (SACC) is saddened by the sudden passing of former Ambassador to Denmark, Ms Zindziswa “Zindzi” Mandela.
She lived a life of great resilience, just like her mother and father, the late Ms Winnie Madikizela-Mandela and former President Nelson Mandela. We send our most sincere condolences to her family, friends and colleagues, and to South Africa at large.
We are indeed going through a difficult period as a country and the world. It is moments like this that remind us of the need to be united in the spirit of working together and healing together, so that we may overcome difficulties together.
May her soul Rest In Peace.
Ms Moagisi Sibanda
South African Council of Churches

The South African Council of Churches (SACC) is an ecumenical association of affiliated Christian Churches, and blocks of churches such as The Evangelical Alliance and the Council of African Independent Churches, with a mandate to lead common Christian action that works for moral witness in South Africa. SACC does not exist for the propagation and the advancement of its doctrinal position, but is the place where our diverse interpretations of our faith come together in action for social justice. It therefore seeks to achieve a visible, just socio-economic and ecological impact, enabled through engaged churches-in-community for a reconciled South Africa and our sub-continent.
