Nelson Mandela Is Responding To Treatment
Nelson Mandela is continuing to respond to treatment at his home in Houghton, South African President Jacob Zuma says.
The former South African president, 95, returned home at the start of September after almost three months in hospital.
In his statement, President Zuma thanked the global community for their support but did not go into detail about Mr Mandela's condition.
Previous statements have often said he is "critical but stable".
Mr Mandela was admitted to hospital in Pretoria in June with a recurring lung condition.
Family members have spoken of their happiness at having Mr Mandela home again.
"Our revered former president continues to respond to treatment at his home," said President Zuma on Wednesday.
"His family and our people have warmly welcomed the support he continues to receive from the global community.
"We are humbled and very grateful for this support."
Mr Mandela has been receiving intensive care at his home in a suburb of Johannesburg, which has been specially adapted for his care.
