Mandela: ‘Remarkable Progress’ In Hospital


Nelson Mandela’s daughter has told Sky News he is making “remarkable progress” in hospital on the eve of his 95th birthday.

In an exclusive interview conducted in the home of the former South African president‘s second wife Winnie, Zindzi Mandela says he is communicating with his eyes and hand.

She revealed he is also watching television and using headphones to hear the sound.

“You can see he is there in his eyes, the same energy and strength,” she said, and hopes he will be released “soon”.

Mr Mandela was admitted to the MediClinic Heart Hospital in Pretoria five week ago, with a recurring lung infection.
