Machel holds prayer meeting for Madiba
SACC President confident world icon Nelson Mandela will return home.
PRETORIA - Former president Nelson Mandela's wife Graca Machel has told the South African Council of Churches (SACC) that her husband is still critical but stable and responds when communicated to.
The SACC's Jo Seoka addressed the media outside the Pretoria Mediclinic Heart Hospital a short-while ago, following an hour long prayer meeting with Machel in a room next to Madiba's ward.
Seoka said Madiba doesn't want people to worry about him, but wants them to uphold the values he stood for.
He added that Madiba is very conscious, can hear every word spoken to him and he does respond.
He said he is confident the former president will be sent home soon to recover.
Tomorrow marks two months since Madiba was admitted to the Pretoria Mediclinic Heart Hospital for a reoccurring lung infection.
