Nelson Mandela’s health improving – Zuma

Friday 21 Dec 2012 7:44 a.m.

South Africa's president says Nelson Mandela has steadily improved over the last few days after being diagnosed with a lung infection and undergoing gallstone surgery.

President Jacob Zuma said Thursday that the 94-year-old Mandela's condition had been serious but that the anti-apartheid icon had responded well to treatment.

Mandela was admitted December 8 to a hospital in the capital, Pretoria.

Mandela was a leader of the struggle against racist white rule in South Africa, serving 27 years in prison for his beliefs.

He served one five-year term as president before retiring from public life.
