Cape Town - Former president Nelson Mandela is doing well after getting a respiratory infection and is in "good health", minister in the presidency Collins Chabane said on Thursday.

"Our former state president is recovering well," Chabane told journalists during a post-Cabinet briefing in Pretoria.

"Things are going very well."

Chabane said Mandela had expertise and doctors around him "all the time".

The government would continue to give regular updates on Mandela's health, he said.

"At the moment, the spokesperson for the president will communicate whatever needs to be communicated."

Mandela, 92, was admitted to hospital last Wednesday with a respiratory infection.

He was discharged on Friday and moved to his home in Houghton.

    There is a very simple reason for tracking this story. Do you have any idea of how scared white people are that "the pig" will die? Every black person in South Africa will start killing even more to honor him. They will say that the whites and their "apartheid killed him. I am very sorry but I have no time for someone who kills and that is what he did.

    Its sad to see from the comments that so called "South Africans" have no respect for one of the greatest leaders of all time. You are a sorry bunch of sour faces. If you don't like reading about this then pack your bags and piss off. Madiba, you are an amazing person and I wish many more years of good health upon you.

      You probably do not know the Madiba bihind the scenes, yep you geuesed right he is also a terrorist, and I do not know if you niticed that his prison number was 46664 and we all know 666 is the anti christ number, the number of a satan. He is also a Communist he was the first South African President to sing kill the whites and there is a video that proofs it. I am not a fan of him, and lets face it he is on his way out, for goodness sake the man has not appeared in public for how long, that means that something is wrong, someone must put the man to bed now he is suffering..
