Luthuli House to hold prayers for Mandela

02 July 2013, 08:33

Johannesburg - ANC national officials and staff at its Johannesburg headquarters will hold a prayer service for ailing former president Nelson Mandela on Tuesday.

The prayer service will be led by African National Congress chaplain general Reverend Vukile Mehana.

"The prayer service forms part of the ANC's nationwide prayer congregations, where members of the public are invited to offer prayers in support of Madiba, his family and the medical team attending to him as he enters his fourth week in hospital," the ANC said on Monday.

Mandela was admitted to a hospital in Pretoria on 8 June with a recurring lung infection.

On Monday, the presidency said his condition remained critical, but stable.

Prayer meetings have been held for the Nobel Peace Prize laureate outside the Medi-Clinic Heart hospital in Pretoria, at his village of Qunu, in the Eastern Cape, and in other provinces around the country.
