44th day in hospital for Mandela but condition is improvinng


It was quiet on Monday outside the Pretoria hospital where former president Nelson Mandela is being treated.

Mandela is spending a 44th day in the Medi-Clinic Heart Hospital, where he was admitted on June 8 with a recurring lung infection.

Street cleaners were sweeping the cordoned off road in front of the hospital.

Police were stationed at both the hospital’s entrances.

Getting Better

Former president Nelson Mandela is getting stronger, his grandson Mandla Mandela said on Monday after a weekend visit.

“The visit left me with a warm feeling, because my grandfather is getting stronger and stronger every day,” he said.

The improvement “is particularly heartening, because it flies in the face of those who have been busy spreading lies that Madiba is in a ‘vegetative state’ and just waiting for his [life] support machines to be switched off.

“Madiba has defied these hurtful statements and continues to prove his fighting spirit that has defined him over the many years of his life,” Mandela said in a statement released on his grandfather’s 44th day in hospital.
