Former South Africa president Nelson Mandela has been discharged from hospital after receiving treatment for a recurring bout of pneumonia.
The beloved ex-leader, 94, was hospitalised last month with an infection of the lungs and had fluid drained from them during his stay in a local medical centre.
However, he was allowed to leave doctors’ care on Saturday to continue his recovery at his home in Houghton, Johannesburg.
A statement issued by a spokesperson for current President Jacob Zuma’s office reads, “Former President Nelson Mandela has been discharged from hospital… following a sustained and gradual improvement in his general condition.
“The former president will now receive home-based high care. President Zuma thanks the hard working medical team and hospital staff for looking after (Mandela) so efficiently.”
