Friends, family and supporters of Nelson Mandela are surely breathing a sigh of relief.
The former South African president has been discharged from the hospital after a bout with pneumonia. He had been in a hospital in Pretoria since March 27th. The Telegraph posted a video of Mandela being returned to his Johannesburg home in an ambulance.
A spokesperson for the 94 year old Mandela said that he will now have home based high care after the doctors confirmed his condition had improved.
His spokesperson also thanked the hospital and team for taking care of Mandela while he was being treated.
This is the third time since December that Mandela has been in the hospital in Pretoria for health issues. His last visit included surgery and recovery from a lung infection.
As we know Mandela is beloved around the world so hopefully, he will continue to get better and fully recover from pneumonia. We’d love it if he didn’t return to Pretoria again – at least not for a hospital stay – but we know this must all be taken one day at a time.
Our prayers and well wishes go out to Nelson Mandela!

“We live by our ethos of aiming to significantly improve the competitive performance of individuals and organisations through business education and this accolade will drive us to continue to improve our programmes even further in line with the ever changing economic landscape.”
The Financial Times’ survey has been ranking schools for 3 years. GIBS has been a top business school globally for nine years.
