UPDATE 12/10/12 9:26 A.M. EST

The Sunday Times, a South African newspaper, quoted an unnamed source close to the Mandela family about the progression of his health since being admitted to the hospital:

“He has not been talking … he is not looking good. It’s clear that something is troubling him.”

However, President Jacob Zuma said in a statement that he “found him comfortable and in good care,” after visiting Mandela.

No further details have been released about the former South African president’s health, but with conflicting reports, we hope he is doing well.


Nelson Mandela, former South African president, has been admitted to the hospital.

The government of the country released a statement on Saturday that said that there was no cause for alarm at the moment.

They also revealed very little details on why Mandela was admitted, but they did say that the hospital was running tests for now.

We hope that Nelson Mandela is doing okay, and that he makes a speedy recovery to get back to doing what he does best.
