Madiba recovering well - Presidency

Former President Nelson Mandela has undergone a procedure via endoscopy to have gall stones removed.
"The procedure was successful and Madiba is recovering," said the Presidency in a statement.

The former President was hospitalised on 8 December for a series of tests. The tests revealed that there was a recurrence of a lung infection and that Madiba had developed gall stones.

"The medical team decided to attend to a lung infection before determining when to attend to the gall stones," it added.

The Presidency once again appealed for privacy for Madiba and his family.
