'No change in Mandela's condition'

Johannesburg, South Africa (PANA) - The South African presidency Thursday maintained that former President Nelson Mandela  remained in ''critical but stable condition'' as he continues to respond to treatment.

The latest update on the health of the global icon followed a visit Thursday morning to the hospital where he is being treated.

''Former President Nelson Mandela continues to respond to treatment, and is still in a critical but stable condition,'' presidential spokesman Mac Maharaj said in a statement posted on the presidency's official website.

The presidency had given the same update after President Zuma's visit to Mandela on Wednesday.

Mandela, 94, has been on admission at a Pretoria hospital since 8 June for the treatment of his recurring lung infection.
