Mandela sitting up and looking around –Grandson

Former South African president Nelson Mandela is “sitting up and looking around” almost a month after being discharged from hospital, his grandson told a local newspaper The New Age on Thursday.

Mbuso Mandela said his grandfather was able to spend time with his children and grandchildren.

“I just saw him again on Wednesday at lunch. He is doing very well,” the grandson said.

“He is sitting up and looking around. We are keeping him company.”

The 95-year-old statesman and global icon was discharged from hospital on September 1, after spending almost three months at the Medi-Clinic Heart Hospital in Pretoria for a recurring lung infection.
