JOHANNESBURG (AP) South Africa's former president, Nelson Mandela, remains "quite ill" and unable to speak because of tubes that are keeping his lungs clear of fluid, though he is relaxed, his former wife told a South African newspaper.
"He remains very sensitive to any germs, so he has to be kept literally sterile. The bedroom there (in his suburban Johannesburg home) is like an ICU ward," Winnie Madikizela-Mandela told the Sunday Independent. "He is 95 years old and it is difficult for him, because of all the tubes that are in his mouth to clear the (fluid from his) lungs, and prevent an infection recurring." Because of those tubes, she said, he communicates through his face.
Mandela's former wife shot down reports that the former anti-apartheid leader and Nobel Peace prize winner was on life support.

Zud AFRika rots.
Just keep applying those Goodyears , Winnie.. his lungs should croak out pretty soon from all the other ones you hung around those who saw you for what you were.. and paid for it with their lives.
I thought he died a couple months ago.
It’s a good thing they don’t have ObamaCare over there. Nellie would be long gone by now.
As opposed to our current leader, who communicates through other bodily orifices.
Anyone else remember, on the Cosby Show years ago, one of the Cosby children had twins, and named them Nelson and Winnie???
Their involvement in terrorism has been whitewashed by the media.
Some think that once Mandela has passed away, that South Africa will go to hell as has Zimbabwe. We’ll see. Some think the only thing holding back some radical elements in South Africa is some enduring respect for Mandela. But once he is gone, who knows.
So his current wife makes no statement but his corrupt murdering ex wife knows all about his condition? Interesting.
shot down reports that the former anti-apartheid leader and Nobel Peace prize winner was on life support.
sounds like Jay Carney..
Legacies of death and destruction ought not be cheered or the leaders of such made out as heroic less we end up like
Nelson.. speechless.. like Hillary about Benghazi.. speechless.. like Obama about uhhhh
Winnie would honor the docs and aides with necklaces if they didn’t keep her informed.
Notice that no one is talking about the mistreatment white South Africans are now receiving. There’s no UN condemnation speeches, no Hollywood activists or liberal do-gooders talking about the poor whites that are suffering.
You are absolutely correct. He was in the news a couple of years ago and a friend of mine who gets ALL her news from the NYT said “Mandella is a wonderful man”.
I quickly set her straight, ....... not that she believed me.
I heta ya. Ya really have to feeeel for all the zimbabweans who sought refuge in SA. Mugabe Mandela MUgabe Mandela..
Maybe they can do a Adams Jefferson same day die thing.
I’d send beer money for the funeral celebrations.. and I don’t do so oft.. or oft enough, anyway. ;]
I misread the title as Winnie Mandela remains of life support.
Shame I got it wrong. Wonder if there will be a 17-burning tire salute when she goes?
oops.. heta? lol
I hear ya
“Their involvement in terrorism has been whitewashed by the media.”
It’s amazing who the Media choose as their heroes...
And many think our military is a terrorist organization...STRANGE!
When these two are gone, South Africa will be a better place.
She should have been tried and executed decades ago.
“They” never do. Video at 11. Won’t believe that either. nellie should have STFU up a long time ago. Commie pos.
When he does die the left over here is going to be outrageous. They will go on and on about him being close to a god. It will be orgasmic for them and quite sickening for those who know the truth about Mandela.
Sadly, Justice comes slow and sometimes suddenly in that part of the globe..
Barbarities between tribes is nothing new. Good luck, China. :-]
