Madiba residence quiet after his returnComment on this story
Nelson Mandela's Johannesburg residence was quiet on Friday following his release from hospital earlier this week.
Only a few cars with military registration plates and two private vehicles were parked at the former president's Houghton home.
A young boy, believed to be one of his great-grandchildren, was seen entering the house around 1.30pm but left soon thereafter.
A few motorists slowed down and gazed at the house as they passed by, hoping to catch a glimpse of activity.
On Thursday, scores of motorists, including a German tourist bus made their way past the residence and conveyed messages of support to Madiba.
There was a media contingent outside his home, with cameramen setting up television cameras and photographers taking pictures of cars and people passing the house.
The 94-year-old was discharged from hospital on Wednesday and was reportedly receiving home-based medical care.
He was flown from his home in the Eastern Cape to a Pretoria hospital on December 8.
Mandela was diagnosed with a lung infection and also underwent gallstone surgery.
He was hospitalised for 18 days - his longest hospital stay since he was freed from prison.
He has a history of lung problems, having suffered from tuberculosis towards the end of his 27-year stay in prison. - Sapa
