South Africa’s President Cyril Ramaphosa has praised the family of the country’s first black President Nelson Mandela for revealing that his daughter, Zindzi, who died on Monday, had Covid-19.

The gesture will “encourage acceptance” of those infected, Mr Ramaphosa said.

The cause of death has not been disclosed.

Zindzi was buried on Friday morning alongside her mother, anti-apartheid activist Winnie Madikizela-Mandela.

South Africa is the African country worst hit by coronavirus, with more than 320,000 cases.

There have been more than 4,600 deaths, and government projections estimate this could rise to 50,000 by the end of the year.

Despite public awareness of how the virus is spread, its symptoms and effects, there have been some reported cases of stigmatisation of those infected.
