Pretoria - South Africa's defence minister has visited former President Nelson Mandela in the hospital and says he is "doing very, very well".

Minister Nosiviwe Mapisa-Nqakula visited Mandela on Monday at 1 Military Hospital in Pretoria, South Africa. She said the nation must keep Mandela "in our prayers."

Government officials previously have said the 94-year-old anti-apartheid icon is "comfortable" and receiving medical care that is "consistent with his age". The nation's military has been responsible for Mandela's medical care since 2011.

Mandela made his last public appearance in 2010. He has grown increasingly frail in recent years.
