Zondwa confirmed on SABC yesterday that, her mother had tested positive for COVID-19, but said they are still awaiting full autopsy results to determine her cause of death.

"There were other tests that were conducted and my mother did in fact test positive for Covid-19 on the day of her passing. Although this does not, therefore, mean that she died of Covid-related complications but simply that she tested positive for it," said Zondwa.
