Mandela discharged from South Africa hospital

Nelson Mandela, anti-apartheid leader and former South African president, has been discharged from hospital and has returned home after being treated for a recurring lung infection, according to government sources.

“Madiba’s condition remains critical and is at times unstable,” the South African president’s office said on Sunday, referring to the 95-year-old Mandela by his clan name.

“His team of doctors are convinced that he will receive the same level of intensive care at his Houghton home that he received in Pretoria,” the statement said.

This comes after a weekend statement by a family member that he had been discharged was denied by Mac Maharaj, the presidential spokesperson.

Mandela had been receiving medical treatment in a Pretoria hospital for almost three months since June 8.
