Nelson Mandela’s Daughters Learned of Father’s Death During Film Honoring His Life
Yesterday, Nelson Mandela’s youngest daughters Zindzi and Zenani attended the London Royal Film premiere of Mandela: A Long Walk To Freedom, based on their father’s life.
The sisters hit the red carpet together, and were able to catch part of the film, before being told about their father had passing. Although they left the screening, they asked that the film continue, and the rest of the attendees were told of after the movie had ended. According to UK’s Daily Mail:
It was only after the credits had rolled that the film’s producer Anant Singh got on the stage to break the news to the rest of the audience. There were screams and gasps of shock while some burst into tears. A two minutes’ silence was held.
