Mandela's condition serious but improving: President Zuma

Jun 16 2013, 3:54pm CDT | by

Cape Town, June 17 (IANS) Former South African president Nelson Mandela, who has been hospitalised for over a week, continues to get better in a Pretoria hospital, President Jacob Zuma said Sunday.

Cape Town, June 17 — Former South African president Nelson Mandela, who has been hospitalised for over a week, continues to get better in a Pretoria hospital, President Jacob Zuma said Sunday.

The revered ex-leader remained in a serious condition as he recovered from a lung infection, BBC reported Zuma as saying.

"Over the last two days, although he remains serious, his doctors have stated that his improvement has been sustained," Zuma said, adding that the 94-year-old anti-apartheid icon "continues to engage with family".

Zuma made the remarks while addressing a gathering for Youth Day in KwaZulu-Natal province in remembrance of the 1976 Soweto uprisings against apartheid.

The president asked the audience to join him in wishing Mandela a happy Father's Day.

Mandela has been in and out of hospital several times since last December.

The badges were designed by backbencher Simon Burns, who famously muttered that Bercow was a "stupid, sanctimonious dwarf", only to apologise to dwarves for the offensive comparison. The ...

Scott Esk, a Republican Tea Party candidate in Oklahoma, got into a debate on Facebook last summer in which he advocated killing homosexuals. “I think we would be totally in the right to do it,” Esk wrote in comments uncovered by Oklahoma journalist Rob Morris. “That goes against some parts of libertarianism, I realize, and I’m largely libertarian, but ignoring as a nation things that are worthy of death is very remiss.” When pressed, Esk added: "I never said ...
