Nelson Mandela’s Health Fails Him Again, Hopitalised for the umpteenth time

94 years old former president of South Africa and the anti-apartheid leader, Nelson Mandela, was admitted into the hospital on the wee hours of Wednesday morning, following a recurring lung infection.

He has become increasingly frail in recent years which has led to his being hopitalised over and over again.
This time around, he was hospitalised "due to the recurrence of his lung infection," the office of present President of the country, Jacob Zuma, said in a statement.

The statement however assured all that the best doctors were attending to him and ensuring that he has the best possible expert medical treatment and comfort.

"We appeal to the people of South Africa and the world to pray for our beloved Madiba (his fond name for Nelson), and his family and to keep them in their thoughts. We have full confidence in the medical team and know that they will do everything possible to ensure recovery," the presidential statement quoted Zuma as saying.

In December last year, Mandela spent three weeks in a hospital in the South African capital of Pretoria, where he was treated for a lung infection and had a procedure to remove gallstones.
Wishing him a quick and good recovery.
