2012-06-05 16:13

Johannesburg - ANC stalwart Winnie Madikizela-Mandela is "doing well" and is still recovering in hospital after breaking her wrist last week, the ANC Women's League said on Tuesday.

"The... league is pleased to report that Comrade Winnie Mandela is doing well in hospital and her condition is much improved," spokesperson Troy Martens said in a statement.

"She has never stopped to take a break from the hard work she does and has done throughout her life. We hope she will be back to good health in no time at all and ready to continue with her valuable contribution to the organisation and the country as a whole."

Madikizela-Mandela was taken to hospital after breaking her wrist, her daughter Zindzi Mandela said on Saturday night.

She fell on Thursday.

The name of the hospital was not disclosed, and her daughter asked for the family's privacy to be respected.

      Five days in Hospital, sounds like more than just a broken wrist ?

      Stewart Croucamp - 2012-06-05 17:30

      Yes it would be a reminder to her of her deeds.

      grace.andtruth.77 - 2012-06-05 18:44

  • Charnelle - 2012-06-05 17:28

    She broke her wrist, while children lose their lives. Enough said.

  • Jack - 2012-06-05 21:16

    I hope the ugly B#tch dies soon.

  • matthews.bantsijang - 2012-06-05 22:03

    Speedy recovery Mma....

  • Blip - 2012-06-05 22:56

    Surgery for a broken wrist is usually an outpatient surgical procedure and, in rare cases, requiring one day of in-patient observation before discharge. Why is Winnie -- "doing well" -- spending three days and counting in in-patient admission? Something must have gone very wrong or else she's malingering.

      Hadassah57 - 2012-06-06 07:05

      Wasting the taxpayers's hard earned money!
