The President, Jacob Zuma also thanked the South African public for their “ongoing support and understanding”.
“We must support him and support his family. We must demonstrate our love and appreciation for his leadership during the struggle for liberation and in our first few years of freedom and democracy by living out his legacy and promoting unity, non-racialism, non-sexism and prosperity in our country”, said President Zuma.
Former President Nelson Mandela is 94 and will add another year on the 18th of next month, July.
“We must all be planning what to do next month in marking our 67 minutes of doing good for humanity as called upon by Madiba to do so, when he launched the International Mandela Day campaign. Let us make it the biggest Mandela Day ever on the 18th of July, focusing on doing good all over the country’’, President Zuma added.
Close family members have been paying visits to ailing Mandela in the Pretoria hospital; many South Africans have equally held prayers for his recovery.
His hospitalization has drawn the attention of many from all over the world with press crews buzzing around the hospital where Mandela is.
