JOHANNESBURG The office of the South African president says he has visited a gravely ill Nelson Mandela in a hospital, and has decided to cancel a visit Thursday to Mozambique.
A statement from President Jacob Zuma's office said Zuma went to see the 94-year-old anti-apartheid leader on Wednesday evening and found him to still be in a critical condition.
The statement says Zuma was briefed by the doctors who are treating the former leader, who was taken to a Pretoria hospital on June 8 to be treated for what the government said was a recurring lung infection.
It says Zuma decided to call off a one-day trip to Mozambique for a meeting on regional investment.
