Mandela is ‘Doing Better’
Former South African President Nelson Mandela is making “steady improvement” under treatment for pneumonia, his doctors have said. But the anti Aparthied icon continues to experience a problem with fluid buildup in his lungs and is being treated for pneumonia with oral medication.
Churches across South Africa are to hold prayers for Nelson Mandela, who has been in hospital for four days being treated for pneumonia.
There are no details yet on how long he will remain in hospital.After Mr Mandela was admitted to hospital last week, Wednesday, President Jacob Zuma said people “must not panic.”
The former president first contracted tuberculosis in the 1980s while detained on windswept Robben Island. His lungs are said to have been damaged while working in a prison quarry. This latest spell in hospital is his fourth in just over two years.
Mr. Mandela served as South Africa’s first black president from 1994 to 1999 and is regarded by many as the father of the nation for leading the struggle against apartheid.
