The Deputy President Kgalema Motlanthe said, "what I convey is that he is receiving the best treatment from the best available health professionals in this country. That should reassure all of us that there is no need for us to panic, there is no need for us to fear for Mandela 's health. He's in good hands."
The South Africa's surgeon general, VJ Ramlakan said, “there is no need to panic or to try to see more in what we are saying. For a 92-year-old, he surprises us on a daily basis on his power of recovery."
Sources said that Mandela was admitted to Milpark hospital on late Wednesday, since then he had received over 10,000 messages of goodwill from around the world.
