Johannesburg – The Mandela clan met for a second time on Tuesday for an ibhunga meeting, eNCA reported.

The meeting is usual held to discuss a significant family matter.

Former president Nelson Mandela is critically ill in the Medi-Clinic Heart Hospital in Pretoria.

An earlier meeting arranged by his eldest daughter, Makaziwe, was held at the Madiba’s rural home in Qunu, on Tuesday morning, to discuss “urgent family matters”.

According to the Vancouver Sun, the widespread assumption was that the first meeting – which was said by some reporters to have included a visit to the family cemetery plot by one of Mandela’s grandsons – was convened to discuss funeral arrangements and the protracted grieving process and celebration of his life that is likely to follow when he passes away.

Anglican Archbishop of Cape Town, Thabo Makgoba, was seen leaving Mandela’s hospital after a brief visit.
