The city's Blessing Manale, "We think that President Mandela, being the anchor of South Africa's democracy, being the father of the new nation, it is quite befitting that his statue stand tall in the city of the administrative centre of the country."

The Presidency has not released any new updates on Madiba since he was discharged from hospital a week ago, saying he remains critical and stable but is at times unstable.
