Mandela is 'sitting up', feeling 'much better': Grandson
JOHANNESBURG (AFP) - Global anti-apartheid icon Nelson Mandela, who is recovering at home after spending nearly three months in hospital, is said to be doing "much better" and sitting up on his bed, his grandson was quoted as saying on Thursday.
Mr Mbuso Mandela told The New Age newspaper that the 95-year-old statesman was "sitting up and looking around" and had spent the Tuesday public holiday surrounded by family.
"I saw him again yesterday (Wednesday) at lunch, He is doing well," he said, adding that "we are keeping him company".
He stressed that Mr Mandela was "much better" and not completely bed-ridden.
