Nelson Mandela Responding to Treatment

South Africa’s president says Nelson Mandela is responding to treatment, though the 94-year-old’s condition remains critical but stable after more than a month in the hospital.

President Jacob Zuma visited the anti-apartheid leader Wednesday evening.

In a statement that referred to the anti-apartheid leader by his clan name, Zuma said: “We are encouraged that Madiba is responding to treatment and urge the public to continue providing support and showering him with love which gives him and the family strength.”

Mandela was hospitalized June 8 for what the government said was a recurring lung infection, and his condition has been critical for over two weeks.
