Nelson Mandela's condition remains the same, serious but stable

It marks the second hospitalisation in as many months for the frail anti-apartheid hero, who will turn 95 in July.

NELSON MANDELA’S CONDITION remains unchanged the South African government has announced.

The Nobel Peace Prize winner remains in a serious but stable condition, two days after being taken to hospital with a lung infection.

It is the fourth hospital stay since December for Mandela, who turns 95 next month, and comes just weeks after he was discharged for the same lung infection.

Mandela’s wife Graca Machel has been at his bedside in hospital after calling off a trip to London.

President Zuma’s office said that “the former president is receiving expert medical care and doctors are doing everything possible to make him better and comfortable.”
