Nelson Mandela 'fine', says ex-wife Winnie
JOHANNESBURG (AFP) - Ailing global peace icon Nelson Mandela, who is receiving treatment at home after spending nearly three months in hospital, is "fine", his ex-wife Winnie Madikizela-Mandela said on Sunday.
"He is fine, the spirits of Africa, his ancestors, our ancestors are keeping him for all of us," Ms Madikizela-Mandela told SABC public broadcaster in South Africa.
Mandela is receiving intensive care for a respiratory illness at his Johannesburg home where he returned after being discharged on Sept 1.
He had spent 86 days in a Pretoria hospital.
