JOHANNESBURG (AFP) – Nelson Mandela is showing ”continuous improvement” in hospital where he is being treated for pneumonia, the South African president said on Thursday.

“Madiba is stable and we are thankful that he is responding well to treatment and that he is much better,” President Jacob Zuma said after visiting the ailing anti-apartheid hero in hospital, referring to the 94-year-old by his clan name.
