Mandela Remains in South Africa Hospital, Zuma Spokesman Says

South Africa’s former leader, Nelson Mandela, 94, remains in hospital after being admitted for a medical check-up, the country’s Presidency said.

Mandela went to a hospital in Pretoria, the capital, yesterday for tests to manage existing conditions in line with his age, Mac Maharaj, a spokesman for President Jacob Zuma said in a statement.

Mandela became South Africa’s first black president after the African National Congress won all-race elections in 1994 that ended apartheid. The Nobel Peace Prize-winner spent 27 years in prison before that for his opposition to white-minority rule in the continent’s largest economy.

He was admitted to a hospital on Dec. 8 and discharged on Dec. 26 for treatment of a recurring lung infection and had gallstones removed.
