Winnie Madikizela-Mandela, the former wife of late South African leader Nelson Mandela, has been hospitalized at a Johannesburg hospital.
“Mandela went to the hospital for a routine medical checkup on Wednesday, March 8. A decision was taken to admit her for further observation,” the statement reads.
Winnie’s spokesman Victor Dlamini confirmed tests are being done on Mandela’s former wife and there’s nothing to worry about.
‘The doctors have decided to admit her for further observation. We are pleased to announce a clean bill of health.
‘She is undergoing quite a number of tests, given her own medical history, but there’s nothing to worry about,’ he said.
Winnie was married to Mandela from 1958 until their separation in 1992 and then divorced after a bitter war of words in 1996.
