Former South African president, and living legend, Nelson Mandela has been admitted to the hospital. The South African government released a statement on Saturday that said that there was no cause for alarm at the moment.
They also revealed very little details on why Mandela was admitted, though they said that the hospital was running tests for now.
New reports have now emerged about the health of Mandela, since he was admitted to the hospital.
According to a South African newspaper, The Sunday Times, an unnamed source close to the Mandela family said:
“He has not been talking … he is not looking good. It’s clear that something is troubling him.”
However, President Jacob Zuma said in a statement that he “found him comfortable and in good care,” after visiting Mandela.
No further details have been released about Mandiba’s health.
Mandiba…our Papa, Africa and the rest of the world prays for your speedy recovery.
Personally, Mandiba…I just can’t bear or imagine losing you now. I know age is not on your side, but I’d love to have you stay with us for much longer.
