Mandela: All quiet outside Milpark hospital
Johannesburg - There were no reporters or government officials outside Milpark hospital in Johannesburg on Saturday following the news that former president Nelson Mandela had been admitted to a hospital.
The presidency confirmed he had been admitted on Saturday after a "long standing abdominal complaint" but declined to say which hospital he had been taken to.
Last year, Mandela was admitted to Milpark hospital when he suffered from a respiratory infection.
On Saturday, a security guard that had been on duty at Milpark since 06:00 said it was business as usual.
"Nothing is happening here. I don't know where you got this story," he said, not wanting to be named.
