Madiba Condition 'Unchanged' - Presidency

Former president Nelson Mandela's condition was "unchanged" on Monday morning, the presidency said in a statement.

"Former President Nelson Mandela remains in hospital, and his condition is unchanged. Madiba was admitted on Saturday, 8 June 2013, for treatment in a Pretoria hospital for a lung infection," the presidency said.

In a statement president Jacob Zuma also  called upon   South Africans to pray for Madiba and the family during this time.

This was the first update in more than 48 hours since the presidency announced on Saturday morning that Mandela was in a "serious but stable" condition after being admitted at Medi-Clinic Heart Hospital in the capital  Pretori.

The media continued camping outside his house in Houghton, Johannesburg, and the number of media outside  Medi-Clinic hospitalkept swelling.
