Former president Nelson Mandela today clocks 12 days in hospital since he was admitted two weeks ago after suffering from recurring lungs.
Mandela continues to receive daily visits from his family at the Pretoria Heart Hospital where he is being treated for a lung infection.
Since he was admitted to the facility nearly two weeks ago Mandiba is believed to still be in a serious condition.
President Jacob Zuma recently announced that the 94-year-old former president is recovering.
While the number of reporters set up outside the hospital continues to dwindle, the messages of support adorning the fence near the entrance is growing.
Madiba’s daughters and several grandchildren were seen entering the facility on Wednesday morning.
Family, including Madiba’s wife Graça Machel and ex-wife Winnie Madikizela-Mandela, have made daily visits to the hospital.
Despite update that Madiba is responding to treatment, there is no indication at this stage when he will be discharged.
