The African National Congress said showing images of a frail former president Nelson Mandela was the right thing to do as the world needed to see him. 

There was an outcry after footage of Former President Nelson Mandela was shown on television in his house during a visit by President Jacob Zuma, ANC deputy president Cyril Ramaphosa, Chairperson Baleka Mbete and his medical team. 

ANC Spokesperson Jackson Mthembu said they are happy Mandela is well, and they had made a decision that the nation, Africa and the world should see him.

“Of course we are aware that Madiba is old and also frail, but that does not take away our love for him and the love of all South Africans and people of the world” Mthembu added.
