Former President Nelson Mandela, who was hospitalised for two weeks last month, has recovered from his surgical procedure and the lung infection, his doctors said today, 6 January 2013.
The medical team said President Mandela has made steady progress and that clinically, he continues to improve. He had undergone an operation to remove gallstones last month and was also troubled by a recurring lung infection. He continues to receive high care at his Houghton home and his daily routine is being gradually re-established.
President Zuma extended good wishes to Madiba on his recovery and once again assured him of the love and support of all South Africans.
