South Africa: Mandela Discharged From Hospital

Posted: Updated:

JOHANNESBURG (AP) - South Africa's president says Nelson Mandela has been discharged from the hospital in the capital, Pretoria.
    
President Jacob Zuma said in a statement Sunday that former President Mandela remains in critical condition and was sent to his Johannesburg home early Sunday, where he would continue to get intensive care.
    
Mandela's condition sometimes is unstable, the statement said.
    
The anti-apartheid leader had been hospitalized since June 8 for what the government has described as a recurring lung infection.
    
"His home has been reconfigured to allow him to receive intensive care there," the statement said. "The health care personnel providing care at his home are the very same who provided care to him in hospital. If there are health conditions that warrant another admission to hospital in future, this will be done."
