    Former South African President Nelson Mandela has been hospitalized again, but officials say it’s only for a routine checkup.

    According to a statement from the presidential office Saturday:

    “Doctors are conducting tests and have thus far indicated that there is no reason for any alarm,”

    In January, Mandela completed his recovery from a lung infection and gallstone surgery and gradually returned to his normal routine.

    CNN reports:

    Mandela, 94, who has not appeared in public since 2010, had continued receiving treatment at his home in Houghton, a suburb of Johannesburg.

    Mandela was hospitalized for a lung infection in early December and a week later underwent surgery to remove gallstones. He was discharged from the hospital after a two-week stay.

    Thankfully this hospital visit is only routine and nothing serious. We hope all goes well for Mandela’s check up.
