Former South African President Nelson Mandel was released from a Johannesburg hospital where he has been treated for recurring lung infection since June 8.

His condition remains critical, but doctors feel he can still receive intensive care at home, the government said.

“Madiba’s condition remains critical and is at times unstable,” says a release by the South African government, referring to the 95-year-old by his clan name.
