Pretoria — Former President Mandela is responding very well to medication and treatment and continues to be visited by close family and relatives.
The South African National Defence Force Surgeon General, Veejay Ramlakan, said the 92-year-old statesman would continue to receive close monitoring and 24-hour care from a team of specialists.
In a statement released on Sunday, Ramlakan said Mandela had had a restful and peaceful Saturday evening.
