Anti-apartheid leader and former South African President Nelson Mandela was discharged from hospital and went home on Sunday, the country’s presidency said in a statement.
“Madiba’s condition remains critical and is at times unstable,” the presidency said, using Mandela’s clan name, according to Reuters.
The 95-year-old was being treated in hospital for a recurring lung infection.
“His team of doctors are convinced that he will receive the same level of intensive care at his Houghton home that he received in Pretoria,” added the statement.
