Zelda la Grange was born in apartheid South Africa.

After completing her studies, she assumed her career in 1992 in National Government at the Department of State Expenditure. In May 1994 Nelson Mandela became the first democratically elected President of South Africa. Zelda joined his office in October 1994 despite her conservative beliefs. In 1997 she was promoted to become one of the President’s three Private Secretaries.

In 1999, President Mandela could choose one person from his office to serve him in retirement and he hand-picked her.

Together with Professor Jakes Gerwel, Zelda was the only other founding staff member of the post-Presidential Office of Mr. Nelson Mandela from where the Nelson Mandela Foundation was established. Zelda served President Mandela in various capacities over 19 years managing his office, personal needs, media and public relations and was the person who spent most time with him other than his wife, Mrs. Graca Machel. Together they travelled the world and became co-dependants. She describes him as her grandfather and he always jokingly referred to her as his “boss”.

She has been awarded by a number of organizations for her dedication and service to the late Nelson Mandela; most notably named a Frederik van Zyl Slabbert fellow as well as a Paul Harris fellow, the highest honour to be bestowed on individuals by Rotary International. She does work for several charitable organisations and continues to contribute to social cohesion.
