Nelson Mandela left a hospital after "successful" medical tests and returned to his home in Johannesburg on Sunday, the spokesman for South Africa's president said.
Former South African leader Nelson Mandela probably will spend Christmas Day in a hospital because his doctors want to be satisfied his health has improved satisfactorily before sending him home, a South African media outlet reported Sunday.
South Africa's former President Nelson Mandela underwent a successful surgery to remove gallstones Saturday, the nation's presidency said, as the 94-year-old anti-apartheid icon is still recovering from a lung infection.
South African media say they have uncovered evidence that supports corruption allegations against a leading anti-apartheid activist who served time on Robben Island alongside Nelson Mandela.
"It is clearly incorrect," South African presidential spokesman Mac Maharaj said, of the condolences issued on behalf of Mr. Bush. "We see it as an error on [Bush's] side."
