The United Democratic Movement Women’s Organisation (UDEMWO) expresses its heartfelt condolences to the late Zoleka Mandela’s family, friends, and loved ones on her untimely passing.

Even though she had and extremely rich and illustrious family heritage, she carved out her own role in the world as an author and activist. Her book, When Hope Whispers, inspired with her candid life story.

She was an example throughout her life and remained strong, even in her hours of suffering. Writing about her experiences motivated many more and she had given a voice to the cancer community.

UDEMWO extends its condolences and prayers to the Mandela family, loved ones, and friends during this difficult time. To her children most of all we say, be strong in this hour of need.
