  • JOHANNESBURG (AP) — Former South African leader Nelson Mandela remains in critical but stable condition in a hospital, though “medical interventions” are required because his health sometimes becomes unstable, the South African government said Saturday.

    Doctors are working hard for a “turnaround” in the condition of 95-year-old Mandela, who was admitted to a hospital in June with what officials said was a recurring lung infection, the office of South African President Jacob Zuma said in a statement.

    In the statement, Zuma’s office quoted doctors as saying the anti-apartheid leader has “demonstrated great resilience” and that his condition has tended to stabilize after medical treatments when his health deteriorates.

    “Doctors are still working hard to effect a turnaround and a further improvement in his health and to keep the former President comfortable,” the statement said.
