A wall at the Celliers Street entrance was adorned with pink and red flowers, balloons, and get-well cards. The wall has been turned into a miniature art gallery since the celebrated anti-apartheid icon was admitted to the hospital on June 8.

Pedestrians stopped to look at the mostly hand-made cards and read the messages in them.

Local and international journalists continued their vigil outside the hospital.

Mandela has been visited every day by several of his relatives, politicians, and government officials. - Sapa
