It further noted that Madiba’s condition remains critical and is at times unstable.

“Nevertheless, his team of doctors is convinced that he will receive the same level of intensive care at his Houghton home that he received in Pretoria. His home has been reconfigured to allow him to receive intensive care there,” the statement reads in part.

“The health care personnel providing care at his home are the very same who provided care to him in hospital. If there are health conditions that warrant another admission to hospital in future, this will be done.”

During his stay in hospital from the June 8, 2013, the condition of the former President vacillated between serious to critical and at times unstable.


The Presidency said Madiba has received full medical support and continues to do so.

“He has also received visits from family, friends and colleagues. Despite the difficulties imposed by his various illnesses, he, as always, displays immense grace and fortitude.”

Madiba has been treated by a large medical team from the military, academia, private sector and other public health spheres.

The Presidency further thanked all the health professionals at the hospital for their dedication.

“Most media have also been notably responsible and we thank them also for the maturity and understanding that all have in general displayed. We now call on all to allow the former President and his family the necessary private space so that his continuing care can proceed with dignity and without unnecessary intrusion.”
