Nelson Mandela has been admitted to the hospital after being released a short time ago. The freedom fighter was admitted to a hospital late night Wednesday “due to the recurrence of his lung infection,” the office of President Jacob Zuma said in a statement.
Mandela contracted tuberculosis during his 27-year imprisonment which cause him to have severe lung problems. “Doctors are attending to him, ensuring that he has the best possible expert medical treatment and comfort,” the statement from the presidency said. It appealed “for understanding and privacy in order to allow space to the doctors to do their work.” We just pray the Mandela will recover soon.
