'Sustained' improvement for Mandela

17 June 2013, 08:16

Johannesburg - Ex-president Nelson Mandela's condition from the recurring lung infection which has lead to him spending a ninth day in hospital, continues to improve, doctors say.

President Jacob Zuma said Mandela remains in a serious condition, but that over the last two days, his doctors have said that the improvements in his health have been sustained.

Zuma said Mandela "continues to engage with family", according to the prepared text of a speech released by the President's office.

When Mandela was hospitalised nine days ago at the Medi-Clinic Heart Hospital in Pretoria, it was his fouth admission to hospital since December.
