The 94 year old, famous African freedom fighter and former South African President, Nelson Mandela is said to be recovering at home In Houghton, Johannesburg, after his discharge from a Pretoria Hospital on Sunday. The ex-president was said to have gone through some routine Medical Examination.
A close friend of Mandela, Human Rights Lawyer, Mr. George Bizos, told newsmen in Johannesburg it seems the ex- president has forgotten that some of his mutual friends are no longer alive. “Unfortunately, he sometimes forgets that one or two of them had passed on and his face is blank when you tell him that Walter Sisulu and some others are no longer with us”, he said.
Bizos added “if he was asked ‘what do you think about this or that issue? His inevitable response was ‘Go ask my president’. He never wanted to second-guess his successor.”by
