Former South African leader’s health has improved
Nelson Mandela’s health improved overnight and although his condition remains critical, it is now stable.
One of Mandela’s daughters said that he was still opening his eyes and reacting to the touch of his family.
Current South African President Jacob Zuma’s office said in a statement that he received an encouraging update from the medical team that is treating Mandela. Zuma cancelled an international trip on Thursday, instead going to visit Mandela for the second time in two days.
