Nelson Mandela On Life Support
(CNN) — Former South African President Nelson Mandela is on life support, an official briefed in detail on his condition said Wednesday.
Mandela has been hospitalized since June 8 for a recurring lung infection. Previously, authorities had described his condition as serious but stable.
But over the weekend, Mandela’s health took a turn for the worse, with the South African president’s office saying he was was in critical condition.
It didn’t show improvement Monday.
Mandela, 94, has become increasingly frail over the years and has not appeared in public since South Africa hosted the World Cup in 2010.
