Johannesburg - One of former president Nelson Mandela's daughters has flown in from South America to visit her father in a Pretoria hospital.

Zenani Mandela-Dlamini, South Africa’s current ambassador in Argentina, arrived at the hospital shortly after landing in Johannesburg on Tuesday, reported Volksblad.

Her mother, Winnie Madikizela-Mandela, sister Zindzi, and half-sister Makaziwe Mandela were also at the hospital on Tuesday, arriving in separate cars.

Their cars were not searched - unlike other visitors coming to the hospital.

It was Madiba’s fourth day in hospital and his condition has been described as serious but stable.

Police presence at the hospital has been stepped up with security not only at the two hospital entrances but also in surrounding streets.
