Nelson Mandela gave everyone a scare over the weekend when reports surfaced the 94 year old former South African president was hospitalized. Some media outlets even reported Mandela to be growing frail in the past year.
But rest ashore. Mandela is doing quite well according to new reports from the South African government.
President Jacob Zuma visited Mandela and says he is “comfortable, and in good care”.
“I think he has had a restful night, the doctors are comfortable about it, they are continuing monitoring,” said Mac Maharaj, Mr Zuma’s spokesman and a former fellow prisoner with Mr Mandela.
The tests seem to be annual tests expected of a man Mandela’s age.
No further details were released on which hospital Mandela had been staying.
May he continue to be in good health.
