Jacob Zuma, South Africa's current President, is going to honor Nelson Mandela with a statue.
We previously mentioned that Mandela is currently in the hospital with a pneumonia like lung infection.
These type of infections are never minor, especially in the elderly, but people do often overcome them.
President Zuma said:
"We will be able to yet again pay tribute to a man who became a symbol of both our struggle for freedom and the free and democratic South Africa. As we meet, [Mandela] is recuperating from a lung infection at a Pretoria hospital. We wish him a speedy recovery and assure him yet again of the love and support of many in the country and abroad."
We also wish him nothing but health and a quick recovery!
You gotta stay around to see your statue!!
Feel better, Nelson!!
