Zoleka Mandela's premature baby dies
FORMER president Nelson Mandela has lost another great-grandchild
Mandela's granddaughter Zoleka Mandela Seakamela gave birth to a baby son, Zenawe, last Thursday.
The baby died yesterday.
The child was born three months prematurely and died because of related complications.
Last year, Zoleka's daughter Zenani, 13, died when she was involved in a car accident on her way back from the Fifa World Cup concert on June 10.
A memorial service for Zenani was held on the anniversary of her death earlier this month.
Zoleka's partner Sekoati Tsubane acts as Kabelo on the Afrikaans soapie 7de Laan.
The soapie's publicity yesterday released a statement announcing the death. "It is with great regret that we report the passing of Sekoati and Zoleka's baby boy at the weekend. Little Zenawe was born three months prematurely and died from related complications," read the statement by the soapie.
