PRETORIA, July 22 (Itar-Tass) - South Africa’s first black President Nelson Mandela is getting better but is still in critical condition, the country’s President Jacob Zuma said on Monday, July 22, after visiting the 95 anti-apartheid revolutionary in hospital.
Earlier, Mandela’s grandson Mandla, who visited him over the weekend, said his grandfather was getting stronger to prove wrong those who are spreading news about his “vegetative state” and who are waiting for the life-support equipment to be turned off.
He said his grandfather had disproved these assertions and confirmed his combative spirit.
Mandela was hospitalised on June 8 with a lung infection, which may be an echo of the tuberculosis he had suffered from during his 27-year imprisonment.
