PRETORIA - Former President Nelson Mandela received his first visitors for the day at the Pretoria Heart Hospital where he's being treated for a recurring lung infection.

Madiba was admitted to the medical facility in the early hours of Saturday morning.

Two of his daughters are visiting the 94-year-old as he spends a sixth day in hospital.

Mandela was visited by his daughters Zenani and Zindzi and her two children Zoleka and Zondwa.

Zindzi left the hospital after being at her father's side for an hour.

Madiba mostly receives visitors in the afternoon.

Meanwhile, with the tight security at the entrance of the facility, it's emerged a cardio patient was harassed by the police after being mistaken for a journalist.

The patient said he was manhandled, searched and had his cellphone seized.

At the same time, the ANC Women's League offered its thoughts and prayers to the Mandela family.

The league has joined the world in wishing the 94-year-old statesman a swift recovery.

It said it's heartened by news that Madiba is responding well to treatment.

The league's Troy Martens said, "At the same time our hearts and thoughts are with the Mandela family during this difficult time as we understand it's not easy seeing a loved one in times of poor health."

Among the visitors he's received every day since his hospitalisation, are his wife Graca Machel, his ex-wife Winnie Madikizela-Mandela and his daughters.

Madiba's eldest grandson Mandla arrived in Johannesburg from the Eastern Cape on Wednesday and said his family was touched by the outpouring of support from the public.

He thanked the government, the ANC and the doctors treating his grandfather.

President Jacob Zuma said he'll visit the ailing statesman when he feels it's appropriate.
