Nelson Mandela in Hospital – #madiba Twitter Feed
Nelson Mandela has been admitted to Milpark Hospital in Johannesburg. At the moment the Nelson Mandela Foundation seem to be acting as spokespersons for Mandela and the family. They are clear that “Madiba is having a routine check-up and is in good spirits.”
Initial reports indicate that an area at the rear of the hospital has been screened off and family members and visitors are being escorted in to “visit” via this area. Some of these visitors are (according to some Twitter users) Mandela clan and family members who have traveled from the Eastern Cape. Media representatives have been moved from the front of the hospital and have been escorted by police to the perimeter of the property. A large security presence is evident around the hospital.
