Former president expects Mandela will pull through

Former South African President Thabo Mbeki said in Pretoria on Saturday he was confident Nelson Mandela would soon make it out of hospital in Pretoria. (SOUNDBITE) (English) FORMER SOUTH AFRICAN PRESIDENT, THABO MBEKI, SAYING: "What the government has been saying is that his condition is critical but stable is correct. But I think we need to add to that that indeed his health is improving. The medical care that he is receiving is in fact excellent and as I say I am quite certain that one of these days the doctors will agree that he can go and stay at home rather than in hospital.'' Mandela was spending his 36th day in the Mediclinic Heart Hospital in the South African capital, where he is receiving treatment for a serious lung infection. The much-loved former president was admitted on June 8 for emergency treatment.
