Zuma visits Nelson Mandela at home
Johannesburg - President Jacob Zuma has visited Nelson Mandela at his home in Johannesburg, the latest in a steady stream of well-wishers.
Zuma, who was abroad last week when the 92-year-old icon was hospitalised for a respiratory infection, would not speak to reporters as he left the home on Tuesday.
Deputy President Kgalema Motlanthe said in a statement on Monday that he was concerned about the high number of visitors, and asked people to give Mandela space.
The deputy president said Mandela was "responding to medication and treatment" and had a "restful and peaceful" night.
