Nelson Mandela is in Critical Condition

Nelson Mandela is fighting for his life after a sudden deterioration in his health.

The 94-year-old former South African president was said to be 'critical' after being admitted to hospital for treatment for a recurrent lung infection.

Despite previous claims that Mandela's health had been improving after battling a recurring lung infection, it emerged in the early hours of Saturday that he had become unresponsive.

It was reported that his liver and kidney functions were down to 50 per cent and he had not opened his eyes for days.

Mandela recently underwent two procedures at Pretoria Hospital, one to repair a bleeding ulcer and another to insert a tube into his body.

Last night his two grandaughters, Swati Dlamini and Zaziwe Dlamini-Manaway, wrote on their Twitter page: "Let us never forget to pray. God lives. He is near. He is real. He is not only aware of us but cares for us."
