JOHANNESBURG - The Presidency on Monday said former President Nelson Mandela remains in a satisfactory condition at home.

The statesman is receiving home based high care after he was discharged from hospital last week.

He was released after spending nine days at an undisclosed Pretoria facility.

Madiba was treated for his recurring lung infection and resulting pneumonia.

This was his second stay in hospital this year after he was admitted earlier in March.

Presidency spokesperson Mac Maharaj said, "He's stable, there's nothing to be concerned about. The doctors have not indicated anything to be concerned about."

The 94-year-old spent the last Christmas in hospital after he was admitted for a recurring lung infection and a procedure to remove gallstones.
