Nelson Mandela is alive and well

Posted on September 15, 2011

JOHANNESBURG (Reuters): Former South African President Nelson Mandela is alive and well despite rumors on social media sites that he has died, state-owned broadcaster SABC reported. SABC cited the Nelson Mandela Foundation as denying the rumors on micro-blogging site Twitter. Mandela, 93, South Africa’s first black president who is revered at home and abroad as a symbol of reconciliation and hope, was hospitalized in January after suffering an acute respiratory infection. Since then Mandela has recovered and he is currently in his home village of Qunu in South Africa’s Eastern Cape province.
