Family members visit Nelson Mandela in hospital


Members of Nelson Mandela’s family, including his wife Graca Machel, visited the ailing former South African president in hospital on June 20.

Mandela’s ex-wife Winnie was also seen arriving at the Pretoria clinic where he is being treated for a lung infection.

The 94-year-old long-time leader of South Africa’s anti-apartheid movement was admitted to hospital nearly two weeks ago.

Mandela has been particularly vulnerable to respiratory problems since contracting tuberculosis during his long imprisonment.
