Mandela’s hospital discharge denied

South Africa’s presidency yesterday denied reports that Nelson Mandela had been discharged from hospital, saying the 95-year-old anti-apartheid icon remained critical but stable.

Madiba, Mandela’s clan name by which he is lovingly known in the country, has been in and out of hospital since last year, with lung related complications.

“Madiba is still in hospital in Pretoria, and remains in a critical but stable condition,” President Jacob Zuma’s spokesman said in a statement.

He denied reports from several news organizations that Mandela had left the facility.

“At times his condition becomes unstable, but he responds to medical interventions.”

Mandela was rushed to hospital on June 8 for a respiratory infection and has been in a critical condition for most of the time since.
