South Africa President Jacob Zuma’s office issued a cryptic message about anti-apartheid legend and former president Nelson Mandela, who remains hospitalized in Pretoria, saying, “We urge South Africans to continue praying for our beloved Madiba during this period.”

President Jacob Zuma this morning, 22 December 2012, visited former President Nelson Mandela in hospital in Pretoria. Madiba has been in hospital since the 8th of December and continues to respond to treatment. President Zuma assured him of the love and support of all South Africans, young and old, and the whole world.
“We urge South Africans to continue praying for our beloved Madiba during this period. Our hearts are with the whole family and relatives,” said President Zuma. Source

I’m not a doctor but this doesn’t sound very good at all. We continue to pray for Nelson Mandela and his family. This can’t be an easy time for them.
