"The Argentine government has given diplomatic credentials to Zenani Mandela-Dlamini, as new ambassador of the Republic of South Africa to Argentina," a foreign ministry statement said.

Mandela-Dlamini (53) is a businesswoman and the first of anti-apartheid hero Nelson Mandela's surviving children to go into public life. She is a daughter of Mandela (93) and his second wife Winnie Mandela.

She replaces former Democratic Alliance leader Tony Leon, who reportedly asked to return to South Africa ahead of the scheduled end of his term in 2013.

Bilateral trade between South Africa and Argentina is worth about $1.3-billion. – Sapa-AFP
