South Africa: Mandela Unstable at Times

Comments: 2  | Leave A Comment

Mandela remains very fragile, and many details of his medical condition have not been divulged or are tightly controlled by his family and Zuma’s office. Zuma urged South Africans to pray for Mandela and to keep him in their thoughts at all times.

Since June 8, when Mandela was taken to a Pretoria hospital to be treated for a recurring lung infection, there has been a groundswell of concern in South Africa and around the world for the man who spent 27 years as a prisoner under apartheid and then emerged to negotiate an end to white racist rule before becoming president in the country’s first all-race elections in 1994.

Zuma’s office said the president will travel to Malaysia Saturday on an official visit during which he will receive a peace award on behalf of Mandela.
