Update on former President Mandela’s health, 27 June 2013

Update on former President Mandela’s health
27 June 2013

President Jacob Zuma visited former President Nelson Mandela in hospital in Pretoria today, 27 June, and was informed by the medical team that Madiba’s condition has improved during the course of the night. He remains critical but is now stable.

“I cancelled my visit to Mozambique today so that I could see him and confer with the doctors. He is much better today than he was when I saw him last night. The medical team continues to do a sterling job. We must pray for Tata’s health and wish him well. We must also continue with our work and daily activities while Madiba remains hospitalised, ’’ President Zuma said.

The Presidency is disturbed by the rumours that are being spread about former President Mandela’s health. We appeal for respect for the privacy and dignity of the former President.

ENDS
