Durban - Mac Maharaj, 80, former spokesperson for the Presidency and a veteran of the governing ANC, is confident that the lung cancer he was diagnosed with will not be a death sentence, Netwerk24 has reported.

Maharaj was full of jokes and determination in the Durban hospital to which he was admitted last Wednesday.

The tumour had been found in the early stages just after he completed a marathon career in politics and retired as President Jacob Zuma’s “spin doctor”.

Maharaj asked that his and his family’s privacy be respected until all medical procedures have been completed.
