So sad! Former South African leader Nelson Mandela is back in the hospital with a recurring lung infection. Nelson was rushed to the hospital on June 8,
when he was declared to be in ”serious but stable condition.”
At some point, Nelson was breathing on his own and had his wife by his
side, the South African president’s office, however, with no updates in
48 hours, the office said Mandela’s condition was “unchanged” on Monday
On June 9, South Africans offered prayers at church services.
“You have been coming to the hospital too many times. Quite clearly you
are not well and there is a possibility you might not be well
again. Once the family releases him, the people of South Africa will
follow. We will say thank you, God, you have given us this man, and we
will release him too,” Andrew said.
Sadly, Nelson has been in and out of the hospital for years.
Nelson, who served 27 years in a South African prison under the
white-minority apartheid regime, has become increasingly frail recently
and has been in and out of the hospital. He spent three weeks in the
hospital in December for a lung infection. Then, in March, he was
admitted to the hospital for a check-up. In late March, he was
hospitalized, when he battled another lung infection.
Let’s say a word of prayer for him!
