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.
"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!!
