There has been very little activity at former president Nelson Mandela’s Houghton home.
The only familiar faces seen entering his posh home in the leafy surburb of Houghton today were his daughter, Makaziwe, and grandsons Ndaba and Mbuso who apparently live at his house.
The strong media contingent outside Madiba’s home though seemed to attract curious onlookers.
It is Mandela’s second day at home after being discharged from the Pretoria Heart hospital where he spent 86 days receiving treatment for a recurring lung infection.
Although Madiba’s condition remains critical, Presidency spokesperson Mac Maharaj said: “His team of doctors are convinced that he will receive the same level of intensive care at his Houghton home that he received in Pretoria.”
Mandela’s home has been reconfigured to allow him to receive intensive care as he is on life support.
He is being looked after by the same doctors and nurses from the military, public and private healthcare sectors who have been caring for him at the Pretoria Hospital.
Maharaj assured South Africans that should there be a need for Mandela to be admitted at the hospital again, it will be done.
