South African President Discharged From Hospital

Monday, 09 Jun 2014 04:51 PM

South African President Jacob Zuma was discharged from a hospital late Sunday after undergoing a routine checkup for two days, the presidency said.

Zuma, 72, will rest for a few days after leaving the hospital in the capital, Pretoria, and work from home, Minister in the Presidency Jeff Radebe said Monday.

“The president undertakes two major medical examinations per annum, the first one in January and the second one in June,” he said. “The doctors felt he needed to be hospitalized for a thorough checkup following a demanding schedule. The doctors are happy with the results.”

Zuma was sworn in for a second presidential term last month after his ruling African National Congress secured 62 percent of the vote in the country’s fifth democratic elections on May 7.

Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa stood in for Zuma at engagements that he was unable to attend because of exhaustion, the ANC said on June 6. Zuma won’t attend a special three-day meeting of the Cabinet that starts June 10, and Ramaphosa will lead it instead, the president’s office said.

Zuma is scheduled to deliver South Africa’s second State of the Nation address this year on June 17. The country has two in an election year to outline the government’s plans.
