Nelson Mandela has been discharged from hospital following a nine-day stay for treatment of pneumonia.

The South African presidency announced the 94-year-old had been cleared to leave the Pretoria hospital following 'a sustained and gradual improvement in his general condition.'


It was the third hospital visit for the former anti-apartheid leader since December when he underwent treatment for gallstones and a lung infection.

According to Dailymail news

'Sustained and gradual improvement': Nelson Mandela has been discharged from hospital after a nine-day stay for treatment of pneumonia. An ambulance carrying the 94-year-old arrives at his home
He was driven out of the hospital grounds in ambulance followed by a police car.

The vehicle went straight to his home in the Houghton neighborhood of Johannesburg.

Yesterday his wife Graca Machel gave the first indication that he was getting ready to leave after saying he was 'getting better and better.'

'Madiba [Mr Mandela's clan name] is fine, Madiba is getting better and better,' the priGraca Mvate eNCA news channel quoted her as saying.
