STAFF RE­PORTER FOR­MER pres­i­dent Nel­son Man­dela is still crit­i­cal but sta­ble in hos­pi­tal.

“While at times his con­di­tion be­comes un­sta­ble, the doc­tors in­di­cate that the for­mer pres­i­dent has demon­strated great re­silience and his con­di­tion tends to sta­bilise as a re­sult of med­i­cal in­ter­ven­tions,” the Pres­i­dency said in a state­ment yes­ter­day.

“Doc­tors are still work­ing hard to ef­fect a turn­around and a fur­ther im­prove­ment in his health and to keep the for­mer pres­i­dent com­fort­able, ’’ said spokesman Mac Ma­haraj.

Man­dela has been in hos­pi­tal since June.

Pres­i­dent Ja­cob Zuma trav­els to Malaysia to­day on an of­fi­cial visit aimed at boost­ing so­cial, po­lit­i­cal and eco­nomic ties.

A Life­time Award for Global Peace to Man­dela will also be awarded by the Ma­hathir Global Peace Foun­da­tion. Zuma will re­ceive the award on Madiba’s be­half.
