Pretoria - Former South African president Nelson Mandela's condition remains “critical but stable” but the government hopes the 94-year-old anti-apartheid hero will be out of hospital soon, President Jacob Zuma said on Saturday.

“We hope that very soon he will be out of hospital,” Zuma said at a televised press conference with visiting US President Barack Obama. Mandela has been in hospital for three weeks for treatment for a recurring lung infection. - Reuters
