Throughout the years and with her work focused on improving all South African’s lives, Zelda has undoubtedly cemented herself as a Fearless Woman.

She is involved in many charitable endeavours, including being a non-executive Director of Healing Hands and she annually acts as a co-ordinator of Bikers for Mandela Day through which she pays tribute and disseminates the lessons learnt from her former boss in a charitable way.

Zelda can also be seen as one of the panelists of kykNET & Kie’s (on DStv channel 146) female panel talkshow, 'Tussen Ons'. 

She continues to inspire people through motivational speaking by sharing her life experiences on international speaker stages. 

In 2014, she published her memoirs in 'Good Morning, Mr Mandela'. In this book, Zelda shares her life and how serving Nelson Mandela for 19 years impacted her life. To date, the book has been translated into ten languages and is distributed in 15 countries, in addition to all the Commonwealth nations. The book recently also appeared in its Japanese translation format.

Zelda is a speaker alongside a team of SA’s most fearless and successful women - Letshego Zulu, Dr. Rolene Strauss, and Amy Kleinhans-Curd. These ladies will be joining women from all walks of life for the Jacaranda FM and Chela-Fer Women’s Breakfast in Pretoria on 8 November 2018.
