Johannesburg: South Africa`s first black President, Nelson Mandela has been unresponsive for days and his family is now reportedly discussing to quit treatment.

According to the report, though previous statements have indicated that Mr. Mandela`s health is improving, the 94-year-old is in hospital since two weeks fighting a recurring lung infection and had two recent surgeries to repair a bleeding ulcer and to insert a tube into his body.

Mandela`s family said that they are hoping that he gets well and comes home soon.
