South Africa's African National Congress (ANC) picked up another clear win last week, enabling the party of Nelson Mandela to continue the winning streak that began with the country's first democratic elections in 1994.
Dogged by allegations of corruption in a country where millions exist on less than $2 a day and youth joblessness is close to 50 percent, the political party that Nelson Mandela led to break apartheid is seeing its popularity evaporate.
Former South African President Nelson Mandela went home in an ambulance on Sunday after a nearly three-month hospital stay that became the focus of a global outpouring of concern, but authorities said Mr. Mandela's health remained critical and sometimes unstable.
Nelson Mandela's health improved overnight and although his condition remains critical it is now stable, the South African government said Thursday. One of the former president's daughters said he is still opening his eyes and reacting to the touch of his family even though his situation is precarious.
Former South African President Nelson Mandela received visits from family members on Sunday at a hospital where the anti-apartheid leader was being treated for a recurring lung infection, while South Africans expressed their appreciation for a man widely regarded as the father of the nation.
Former President Nelson Mandela was discharged from a hospital on Saturday after an improvement in his health following treatment for pneumonia, the South African presidency said.
Former South African President Nelson Mandela had a restful day in a hospital Sunday and is improving following treatment for a recurrence of pneumonia, the government said.
South African anti-apartheid leader Nelson Mandela has recovered from his recent lung infection and a surgical procedure to remove gallstones, according to an announcement Sunday by President Jacob Zuma.
A couple of decades ago, Nelson Mandela grew withdrawn while feasting with his family on Christmas Day in the part of rural South Africa where the anti-apartheid leader lived as a child. Alarmed by the patriarch's silence, some relatives looked at him and asked if anything was wrong.
South African President Jacob Zuma on Thursday honored anti-apartheid icon Nelson Mandela, who has been hospitalized since the weekend and who the president said is recovering from a lung infection.
Worshippers here prayed Sunday for Mr. Mandela, the hospitalized 94-year-old former president who remains almost a secular saint and a father figure to many in South Africa, a nation of 50 million people that has Africa's top economy.
Inside a Catholic church that once served as a major rallying point for anti-apartheid activists, the image of a gray-suited Nelson Mandela appears in a stained-glass window that also features angels and the cross.
South African President Jacob Zuma says that former President Nelson Mandela has been admitted to hospital in Pretoria to undergo tests.
South Africa's deputy president is being urged to challenge President Jacob Zuma for the leadership of the ruling party, the African National Congress.
Freedom of expression needs to be balanced to give the right to dignity and privacy to all South Africans, President Jacob Zuma said this week, after he agreed to withdraw a defamation case against a newspaper cartoonist who depicted him poised to rape Lady Justice.
"The international media spotlight has been on our country," President Jacob Zuma said this week. "The world has seen this country in a different light. They have seen the warm friendly people. They have seen the precision when it comes to planning and logistical arrangements."
President Jacob Zuma announced Thursday that South Africa would stop recognizing half the nation's traditional kings and queens, dismissing them as artificial creations of the apartheid regime.
