Nelson Mandela Health Concerns

President Zuma has decided to cancel his visit to Maputo, Mozambique where he was due to attend the SADC Regional Summit on Infrastructure Investment tomorrow, 27 June 2013.

There are still officially unconfirmed reports that the former South African leader has been removed from life support. 

Mr. Mandela’s granddaughter Ndileka Mandela reports that the family were taking comfort from messages of support from the public.

His daughter Makaziwe said he was “still there” and responding to touch.

There is concern over how many will respond to the news, should it come of Mandela’s death.
