Are these Nelson Mandela’s last days? His life is weakening – In hospital being treated for serious lung infection

Posted by African Press International on June 13, 2013

Former  South Africa’s first black President Nelson Mandela is said to be responding to treatment in hospital, according to the government.

President Jacob Zuma has been quoted saying the former president is positive to treatment. He told parliament that he was glad when he got the progress report on the health of the former leader owing to the fact that Mandela has had difficult days in the start of treatment. Mandela is now 94 years, with lung infection on his sixth day in a Pretoria hospital.

His health worries his wife Graca Machel, his daughter and two granddaughters. The family reportedly has sent out a statement saying they are deeply touched by the concern people are showing for Mandela during this trying moments.

Mandela spent 27 years in jail fighting the then apartheid regime. He was elected president in 1994 and he chose to remain president for only one term.

API feels with his family and hope all goes well with the hero of South Africa.
