The former South African president, Nelson Mandela, 92, abandoned the hospital after been treated of a respiratory infection. “There is no need to panic. For a person of 92 years we are surprised by his recovery capacity.” Vejayanand Ramlakan, the general surgeon of South Africa, informed to the media.
Mandela suffered from tuberculosis when he was in jail; afterwards the former president was submitted to an eye operation. In 2001 he was treated by a prostate cancer. In 1990 Mandela was released from prison after 27 years.
