Johannesburg - Former president Nelson Mandela is still in hospital, with no news of a change in condition, presidency spokesperson Mac Maharaj said on Sunday.

Mandela was admitted to hospital on Saturday with a stomach ailment.

"Let's work on the basis that no news is good news," Maharaj said.

"Based on yesterday's report, he is in no serious danger. Doctors are thinking of releasing him today or tomorrow, but I'm sure they will want to err on the side of caution," he said.

Maharaj promised that the presidency would issue a statement as soon as more news was available.

SABC news reported on Sunday that the media were still encamped outside One Military Hospital in Pretoria where Mandela, 93, was believed to have been admitted.

The presidency has refused to disclose which hospital is looking after him.

Maharaj told the broadcaster that Mandela was receiving good medical care, and had undergone a diagnostic procedure.

      I don't think the ANC is involvrd in that, we have so many journalists out there that don't verify anything, all what they want is ro be the first with the news - true or false it does not matter - be the first - that are the journalists that should be made redundant !!!

    The role of the media will always be controversial so long the computer industry allows human opion to dissemination of information. i sometime wonder whether the advanced technology would make any little conception. Some of the news that journalist feed to public are just second re-writes

    Remember that praising false Gods will get you to hell!!! Is he not referred to by the media, leftist liberals and the Marxist Government as the "father of the nation". Looks like their comment about ruling until God returns has no more merit as they clearly do not know anything about the Word of God.
