Pretoria - Former president Nelson Mandela deserves to live, the president of the St Anthony prayer group said on Wednesday.

“We believe in God. God heals (and) he never says goodbye,” Anthony Amachia-Kuecha said after the group prayed for Mandela outside the Mediclinic Heart Hospital in Pretoria.

“We pray to God for him (Mandela) to reach 100 years. He is still young.”

He said in every situation, no matter how sad, God always provided absolution.

The group lit candles and wished Madiba a speedy recovery. - Sapa
