Former South African President Nelson Mandela is in critical, but stable condition. Mandela has been in the hospital for more than two weeks.
“The main message we’ll want to deliver if not directly to him but to his family is simply our profound gratitude for his leadership all these years and that the thoughts and prayers of the American people are with him and his family and his country,” Obama continued.
Current President Jacob Zuma’s office released a statement through his office saying that doctors are doing everything they can. His daughter says that he is at peace. Mandela is 94 years old.
