Asking for a miracle one more time for Mandela

28 June 2013, 07:04

South Africans are praying for a miracle one more time for Nelson Mandela after the icon for freedom showed signs of improvement at a Pretoria hospital. The President reported that Madiba was better than the last time he saw him even though we are not sure what he meant. Former South African president has been suffering from a bout of multiple concurrent illnesses involving his vital organs since being admitted in hospital from the 8th of June 2013.Many people all over the world are hungry for news of his medical progress and social networking sites have been buzzing with news about well wishes and love for Madiba. Those who knew what Madiba has done for South Africa are not surprised why he has been a fighter and overcame oppression by serving an unjust sentence in Robben island under apartheid government.

The conviction of Mandela about freedom and equality has been profound in such a way that during his Rivonia trial speech, Mandela reported that he was prepared to die for those ideas. When Mandela was sentenced to life imprisonment, many thought that it was the end of him and the ANC and they were wrong.Mandela survived the harsh conditions for 27 years and he was released n good spirits and surprised many people around the world when he chattered a new South Africa. The public relationship that Mandela had was indeed magic. Everywhere he went, people young and old were interested to experience his charm.  President Nelson Mandela served one term as South African president and he went into retirement and left other leaders in charge of the ANC.

When news about the recent hospitalisation of Madiba was learned by people all over the world, people were eager to find out the prognosis from the doctors treating him at Mediclinic Heart hospital in Pretoria. There were several reports indicating that his situation was stable for sometime and Madiba kept fighting. There is no doubt about his age and the way in which his body is challenged to respond to various medical conditions. People have been praying for Madiba to surprise everyone and get discharged from the hospital. Several government officials have been preparing the public for the worst just in case something happen to Madiba.

It would be a story of survival against all odds if Mandela recovers from his current hospitalisation in South Africa. People have been singing songs of struggle saying that there is no one like Madiba outside the hospital. The recent times have lacked heroes like Madiba around the world who are loved by the young and old.The story of Madiba has been full of inspiration and miracles in the past and people are asking if Madiba can give them one more time.
