Dr Ramlakan was Mandela's physician for nearly 10 years.

FORMER SANDF Surgeon General, Lieutenant General Vejay Ramlakan, has died, a family member confirmed the news to eNCA on Thursday night. 

He was 62.

Ramlakan served as former president Nelson Mandela’s medical doctor for nearly a decade.

In 2017, he authored a book titled ‘Mandela’s Last Years’, which was later withdrawn after Mandela’s family complained that the book contained personal details.

Ramlakan was a former member of the ANC’s armed wing uMkhonto we Sizwe and a founding member of the United Democratic Front.

This is a developing story.
