Former President Nelson Mandela admitted to hospital ...........

no cause for alarm , they say ....................

Wishing you well Tata. Get better soon, we need you here for a long long time still. 

President Jacob Zuma said in a statement that there was no cause for concern.
"As said before, former President Mandela will receive medical attention from time to time which is consistent with his age," spokesperson Mac Maharaj said.
There was no cause for alarm, said Maharaj.
"President Zuma assures all that Madiba is doing well and there is no cause for alarm. We wish Madiba all the best. The medical team is assured of our support as they look after and ensure the comfort of our beloved founding President of a free and democratic South Africa."
The Presidency appealed to the media and the public to respect the privacy of Mandela and his family. – Sapa.


  1. Portuguese media has been extensively covering on his health condition... May God bless him...

  2. This has received no coverage in the UK media, as far as I know.

    Hope you feel better soon, Madiba.

  3. Mandela is one of my heroes. Yes, we need people like him! Wishing him the best!

  4. as far as I can see on our local news, he is still in hospital, resting comfortable, is all they will tell us. Probably at the 1 Military Hospital in Pretoria. I can understand them not divulging any more as I remember the media circus his last hospital visit turned into.

    Keep praying. He is 94, cannot last for ever, but oh , I fear what will happen. This could not happen at a worse time, with the ANC Mangaung Elections coming up. oh dear *sigh*
