It was Zindzi Mandela who read out Nelson Mandela's rejection of then-president PW Botha's offer for conditional release from prison at a public meeting in February 1985.
Her mother, Winnie Mandela (now late), is renowned for taking part in South Africa's apartheid struggle.
Buthelezi said as a close friend of her late parents, he had known Zindzi all her life.
The "My father says" speech was read to a mass gathering in Jabulani Stadium, Soweto, after Botha offered Nelson Mandela his freedom on condition that he "unconditionally rejected violence as a political weapon".
Zindzi was a dear colleague working tirelessly and with a smile to nurture and grow the strong friendship between SouthAfrica and Denmark.
