Nelson Mandela’s ‘health continues to improve but his condition remains serious,’ South African President Jacob Zuma said in a statement on June 13. More on his condition below.

Former South African President Nelson Mandela, 94, was hospitalized on June 8 due to a recurring lung infection. When he first was admitted to the hospital, he was in “serious but stable condition.” Current president Zuma visited him on June 13 and urged South Africans and his followers worldwide to wish him “a speedy recovery.”

Nelson Mandela In Hospital — Health Improving

Nelson remains in the Pretoria hospital, in the capital of South Africa. His wife Graca Machel and daughter Zenani have been by his bedside since he was admitted.

He is still in intensive care, where he was first admitted on June 8.

After President Zuma’s visit, he also told his people to keep Nelson “in their prayers.”

Nelson Mandela’s Family Speaks Out

After his hospitalization, Nelson’s grandson and family heir, Mandla, said that the public’s concern and support had “deeply touched” the entire family.

Nelson Mandela’s Background & Health Concerns

Nelson became South Africa’s first black president in 1994 after fighting for race equality. He remained President for five years.

Before being elected, he served 27 years in a South Africa prison. The BBC reports that he contracted tuberculosis in the 1980’s while in jail. It is believed he got sick after he suffered lung damage from working in a prison quarry.

Nelson was recently hospitalized in December for a lung infection and again in March for the same condition.

We are so happy to hear Nelson is on the mend! We wish him well. What about you, HollywoodLifers?

I’m impressed, I have to admit. Seldom do I come across a weblog that’s each equally educative and fascinating, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. The issue is some thing that not enough people are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that I came across this in my look for some thing concerning this.
