Get well Madiba:

The South African ruling party appealed for calm Thursday after Nelson Mandela was hospitalized a day earlier in Johannesburg. A spokesman for the African National Congress said Mandela was undergoing routine tests. “It is a well-known fact that Madiba is 92-years-old and no longer a young man,” said Jackson Mthembu, the spokesman. “As South Africans, let us all allow doctors at the hospital to do their best in conducting tests on our elder statesman. We also wish to confirm that Madiba is well taken care of at the hospital.”

Madiba is the former president’s clan name, which is popular in the country. The spokesman also urged the media to “refrain from making unfounded and unwarranted speculation” on Mandela’s health. “We also request the media, in particular, to give Madiba’s family and the hospital the necessary privacy,” the spokesman said.

Mandela was flown to a Johannesburg hospital on Wednesday from Cape Town, where he was on vacation, according to a source close to his family who is not authorized to speak to the media. “He is in no danger and is in good spirits,” his foundation said in a statement. Mandela rarely makes public appearances. His last appearance was at the closing ceremonies of the World Cup in South Africa over the summer.

Wow…92-Years-Old, bless his heart.

  • daresay - the last son of God

    What is so great about Mandela? He spent 27 yrs in jail, in a whiteman’s prison. And the minute he got out of jail, he dumped his wife who stood by him through all the struggles, and then married his late friend’s wife. I prefer Robert Mugabe. Mugabe has a better vision for Africa if only other puppet leaders across Africa would stop kissing western arse and come together with one voice to reclaim Africa.

      1st of all this is for Madibas well wishers 2nd Winnie Mandela had affairs while he was in jail and was involved in shady political dealings not to mention her pushing for violence which goes against what Mandela stood for. 3rd Mugabe???? Really???the guy gest medical care from Europe while his people suffer his daughters are in Japan getting the best education and $30 million dollars from the U.S as a gift for God knows what. He is as corrupt and worse…a hypocrite.
