The Nelson Mandela Foundation has hit out against supposition around former President Nelson Mandela’s health, saying that he is well.

Chairperson of the foundation Professor JG Gerwell was quoted in the media as saying Madiba needed to rest.

“The fact is that Mr Mandela is as well as anyone can expect of someone who is 91-years-old and who has lived an active and demanding life as he has,” he said.

“He obviously needs to rest more than he has in the past, and indeed to do the things that he enjoys in his well deserved retirement,” Gerwell added.

He said that the former president had recently decided to cut back his engagements even further to spend more time with his family.
