South Africa's first black president, 94, was taken to hospital in Pretoria earlier this month for the third time this year, with a lung infection.Mr Zuma said he had been told by doctors that the former president's condition had worsened over the past 24 hours.
"The doctors are doing everything possible to get his condition to improve and are ensuring that Madiba is well-looked after and is comfortable. He is in good hands," said President Zuma, using Mr Mandela's clan name by which he is widely known in South Africa.

I'm fairly certain there will be some crass hatred posts as on other threads about Mandela but I implore the serious posters here to just ignore them.
Here's to Mandela.
