Former state President Nelson Mandela has been receiving well wishes from all over the world after he was admitted to hospital for the second time in as many months this year.

Different churches held prayer meetings for him during the Easter weekend and some members of the public have been leaving stones inscribed with get well messages at his home in Johannesburg.

Mandela was admitted to hospital last Wednesday to be treated for pneumonia.

According to presidency spokesman Mac Maharaj, Mandela’s doctors said he is responding satisfactorily to the treatment and is much better than when he was first admitted.
