Nelson Mandela's current hospitalization is due to a lung infection, authorities said Tuesday.
A statement from the President Jacob Zuma's office said that tests revealed "a recurrence of a previous lung infection."
Mandela is responding to the treatment, the statement from the office said.
Mandela is 94.
I wish Papa Mandela a very quick recovery.
@Issa, you apparently have a good impression of Mandela. Why? Are you aware he is a communist murderer, personally killing at least one and ordering the ANC's Umkhonto we Sizwe to murder hundreds of rivals both within the ANC and in the IFP? Under the ANC's corrupt and authoritarian leadership a great nation is destroyed. Are you among the supposedly communist corrupt who have profited? There is no other basis to praise this man whose legacy is suffering and misery.
I know it's off topic but I would like to thank the government and people of Costa Rica for recently banning hunting as a sport.
I wish that would happen here in the US also.
