Johannesburg: Former South African president Nelson Mandela who has spent eight days in the hospital to receive treatment for a recurring lung infection, is recovering well, his grandson informed, according to BBC.
Earlier on Thursday, the country’s current President Zacob Zuma said that Mandela’s condition was improving but remained serious.
It is the third time that Mandela has been admitted to the hospital this year raising his health concerns.
In December last year, he spent 18 days in the hospital for the lung infection treatment and gallstones.
Mandela became the first black South African president in 1994.
