Johannesburg - Former president Nelson Mandela has been re-admitted to an undisclosed hospital, the presidency said on Thursday morning.

He was hospitalised on Wednesday before midnight due to a recurrence of his lung infection, spokesman Mac Maharaj said in a statement.

“Doctors are attending to him, ensuring that he has the best possible expert medical treatment and comfort,” he said.

President Jacob Zuma wished him a speedy recovery.

“We appeal to the people of South Africa and the world to pray for our beloved Madiba and his family and to keep them in their thoughts,” Zuma said in a statement.

“We have full confidence in the medical team and know that they will do everything possible to ensure recovery.”

Maharaj appealed for “understanding and privacy in order to allow space to the doctors to do their work”. - Sapa
