South Africa: Mandela Discharged From Hospital

Sunday, 10 Mar 2013 10:35 AM

JOHANNESBURG — The spokesman for South Africa's president says Nelson Mandela has been discharged from hospital and has returned to his home in Johannesburg.

Presidential spokesman Mac Maharaj said in a statement Sunday that doctors had completed a "successful" medical examination of the 94-year-old Mandela and that he is "well."

The former president and anti-apartheid leader was admitted to a hospital in Pretoria on Saturday.

Mandela was hospitalized for nearly three weeks in December. At that time, he was treated for a lung infection and had a surgical procedure to remove gallstones.
