It is with profound sadness that we announce that Mrs Winnie Mandela passed away peacefully this afternoon (02 April 2018) at Netcare Milpark Hospital in Johannesburg after a prolonged illness.

Mrs Mandela was surrounded by her family and loved ones. On behalf of Netcare we express our deep sorrow at the passing of Mrs Mandela, the mother of our nation, a heroine and struggle icon, who devoted her life to the liberation of South Africa.

Our thoughts and prayers are with her daughters and family at this sad time.
