Nelson Mandela remains in critical condition in hospital
Kunal DuttaThe former South African president Nelson Mandela is in a critical condition in hospital, just two weeks after the 94-year-old anti-apartheid leader was admitted to hospital with a lung infection. The news, broken by President Jacob Zuma after a hospital visit late on Sunday evening, left millions of South Africans fearing the worst.
Mr Mandela has been in hospital four times since December last year, but this latest occurrence was thought to have sparked by far the gravest reports on his condition.
Mr Zuma and the deputy leader of the ruling African National Congress (ANC), Cyril Ramaphosa, visited Mandela, where doctors said his condition had worsened in the last 24 hours. "The doctors are doing everything possible to get his condition to improve and are ensuring that Madiba is well looked after and is comfortable. He is in good hands," it said, referring to Mandela by his clan name.
