Tukwini was born in the Eastern Cape as the oldest child of Dr. Makaziwe Mandela. While her mother was away studying at university, Tukwini was raised by her grandmother until the age of 10, when she moved with her family to the United States. The U.S. proved to be quite an experience for Tukwini who spoke no English. After high school, Tukwini joined her mother in Kenya for six months. She returned to South Africa in 1994 where she obtained her degree in Social Work at Wits University and a certificate in Account Management from the AAA School of Advertising. She is currently the Marketing Director for House of Mandela, a business which she runs with her mother.
