Nelson Mandela’s grandson, Ndaba Mandela, has revealed that he has tested positive for the coronavirus. The author, mentor, spokesperson, entrepreneur and political consultant broke the news on his Instagram account.
In a video shared on social media, Ndaba Mandela said that he is not showing any symptoms and has admitted that he would go on a healthier diet, which included no alcohol. He also reminded South Africans to wash their hands with soap for at least 20 seconds.
“I got my test results back, and they tested positive. I have the rona, yo! The rona! Can you believe that? The rona!” – Ndaba said in a video clip which has since been deleted after allegedly receiving backlash for not taking the matter seriously.
Ndaba later posted a second video on Instagram saying: “I’m posting this video now because there are some people that feel I wasn’t serious in my last post.”
“This is a very serious situation, and I don’t take it lightly for a second. However, when you’ve gone through so much in life, I know, for example, that stressing is not going to make a difference. So, I urge you not to stress. I urge you not to get anxiety.” – he said
