The meeting is taking place at the Nelson Mandela Center of Memory, which is part of the former South African president’s foundation.

The White House didn’t say which Mandela family members the Obamas are meeting with.

The president and first lady will not meet with the ailing 94-year-old Mandela, who is hospitalized with a lung infection. The White House says that decision was made in accordance with the Mandela family’s wishes.
