Keep Mandela In Your Prayers….

Nelson Mandela in
Nelson Mandela June 2010

On Monday (June 10,2013) the medical team of 94-year old former President and historian Nelson Mandela released a current update to President Jacob Zuma on the condition of his current state, reports say: Mandela in now spending his fourth day in hospital for treatment for a recurrent lung infection…. According to BBC, “Relatives, including his ex-wife Winnie Madikizela-Mandela, visited the ailing former leader on Monday….He has been in intensive care since he was admitted to the hospital in Pretoria on Saturday for the third time this year.


Currently he remains in intensive care and appears to be in serious but stable condition….

Reports say that,…behind the scenes  the story may be even more gloomy, the first signs perhaps of the family of Nelson Mandela beginning to gather at his bedside. We’ve also heard from some of his close friends, one saying that it was time for the public and the family to let him go. There is a general sense here that the public is catching on to the sombre mood surrounding Nelson Mandela. For many years, people did not even want to speak about the possibility of his death. Increasingly it seems South Africans are preparing for bad news.

On Monday, the foundation led by retired Archbishop Desmond Tutu issued a statement describing Mr Mandela as an “extraordinary gift”. “As the beloved father of our nation, Nelson Mandela once again endures the ravages of time in hospital,” the foundation said. “Our prayers are for his comfort and his dignity.” There are signs that his family may have begun to gather at his bedside, the BBC’s Andrew Harding, in Pretoria, reports. On Monday, Mr Mandela’s ex-wife, Winnie Madikizela-Mandela, visited him. His grand-daughters have also been coming and going, our correspondent says. The leader’s eldest daughter, Zenani Mandela-Dlamini, has returned to South Africa from Argentina, where she is the ambassador, to visit her father. His wife, Graca Machel, cancelled a scheduled appearance in London on Saturday to remain at her husband’s bedside. Click here to read full story from source>>> BBC News Africa

Our Thoughts and prayers are go out to him, his family, and friends…
