Cape Town - Former South African president
Nelson Mandela is "sitting up and looking around’’ almost a month after
being discharged from hospital, his grandson told a local newspaper
`The New Age' on Thursday.
Mbuso Mandela said his grandfather was able to spend time with his children and grandchildren.
"I just saw him again on Wednesday at lunch. He is doing very well,’’ the grandson said.
" He is sitting up and looking around. We are keeping him company."
The 95-year-old statesman and global icon was discharged from hospital on Sept. 1, after spending almost three months
at the Medi-Clinic Heart Hospital in Pretoria for a recurring lung infection.
