JOHANNESBURG — Nelson Mandela “continues to get better” after more than a week in hospital battling a lung infection although his condition remains serious, South African President Jacob Zuma said Sunday.
“As you are aware, president Nelson Mandela is still in hospital in Pretoria. We are grateful that he continues to get better,” Zuma said at a public rally. “Over the last two days, although he remains serious, his doctors have stated that his improvement has been sustained. He continues to engage with family.”
