Former South African president Nelson Mandela has been discharged from hospital but his condition “remains critical and is at times unstable”, the country’s government has announced.
President Jacob Zuma’s office said the government would like to wish Mr Mandela “all the best” as he continues his recovery at his Johannesburg home.
In a statement, the government said: “Madiba’s condition remains critical and is at times unstable. Nevertheless, his team of doctors are 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 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.”
