Turning personal grief at the death in a road crash of her daughter Zenani into high profile activism, Zoleka Mandela is a powerful advocate for safer roads and particularly for child rights.

Zoleka launched her ‘Zenani Mandela Campaign’ in 2012 and was the leading figure behind the ‘Long Short Walk’ in 2013, which saw thousands of people from Cape Town to Washington DC taking to the streets to demand action for road safety in the Post-2015 goals. She also has been a vocal supporter for including ‘better roads and transport’ in the UN’s MY World survey on the Post-2015 priorities.
