Former South African president Mandela on death bed and still fighting

Ailing former South African President Nelson Mandela spent almost three months in a Pretoria hospital after being admitted in June with a recurring lung infection.The 95-year-old liberation struggle icon was discharged in September and has been receiving home-based medical attention since then.
'Mandela is not doing well' but is continuing to put up a courageous fight from his 'deathbed', according to his family..His daughter, Makaziwe Mandela, told the South African Broadcasting Corporation in an interview: 'Tata is still with us, strong, courageous. Even for a lack of a better word .... on his `deathbed' he is teaching us lessons; lessons in patience, in love, lessons of tolerance.
