Former South African President Nelson Madiba Mandela who is in critical condition due to lung infections, for some days now been admitted at a hospital in Pretoria which has sent whole South African country on the edge with one line of prayer in mind “get well soon”.
Since he was hospitalized, many prayers and flowers have flooded the hospital walls he is in and journalists from all over the world are in South Africa to get up to date news on the health of the man that brought democracy to South Africa, the man who sacrificed his all for his country. Last week many youth from his political party gathered at the hospital chanting his name and singing songs asking him to get up from his sick bed. Yet it is widely reported that although the 94 year old former president is in critical condition yet stable.
Mr. Mandela is believed to be suffering from lung infections due to the dump state of his prison cell in Roben Island where he spent over twenty years as a political prisoner even before becoming President of South Africa. President Obama recently on his tour to the African Continent paid a visit with his family to the Roben Island Prison and to Mandela’s cell although he couldn’t see him in the hospital.
All over the world people pray for Mandela of which US rapper Curtis James Jackson III known as 50 Cent took to Twitter and Instagram to send a prayer shout out to Mandela. This brought lots of comments from his fans that were to see such post from their icon. 50 CENT adds up to the long list of famous personalities who have voiced out their concern about the health of the African Hero and Legend.
