Cape Town –  The South African National Editors' Forum (Sanef) has sent its condolences to the family of renowned photo-journalist Juda Ngwenya who died recently.

Ngwenya, who took the iconic picture of former president Nelson Mandela casting his first ballot, died after suffering a stroke. 

The former Reuters photographer later presented the picture to Mandela.

"Judah was a fearless photographer who documented the struggles of various communities against apartheid when he worked for a number of publications and also as head of photography at the international agency Reuters," Sanef said in a statement.

In his role at Reuters, Ngwenya ensured that an international audience was fully informed of events in South Africa, Sanef said.

"Sanef sends its deepest condolences to his wife, Mwelase and the children."
