Mandela leaves hospital after short procedure

Let’s hope that it’s a speedy recovery for the 93 year old. He’s been through a lot and at his age, even something small can become a big problem. Though he’s been out of the public eye for a few years, hopefully he still inspires leaders to do the right thing, as he did following the horrible years of apartheid. BBC News:

Former South African President Nelson Mandela has been discharged from hospital after a diagnostic procedure for an abdominal problem, the government says. President Jacob Zuma’s office said he was sent home after the checks “did not indicate anything seriously wrong”. Officials earlier said the 93-year-old Nobel Prize laureate had undergone a laparoscopy but was recovering well.
