The First information was given at Sunday 9 June 2013 12:45....

An update on the condition of former President, Nelson Mandela, is only expected later on Sunday. The Presidency last reported on Saturday that Madiba is in a serious but stable condition in a Pretoria hospital.

Mr Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela is sometimes called by other names.

Each name has its own special meaning and story. When you use them you should know what you are saying and why. So here is a brief explanation of each name.


Rolihlahla – This is Mr Mandela's birth name: it is an isiXhosa name which means "pulling the branch of a tree", but colloquially it means "troublemaker". His father gave him this name.


Nelson – This name was given to him on his first day at school by his teacher, Miss Mdingane. Giving African children English names was a custom among Africans in those days and was influenced by British colonials who could not easily, and often would not, pronounce African names. It is unclear why Miss Mdingane chose the name "Nelson" for Mr Mandela.


Madiba – This is the name of the clan of which Mr Mandela is a member. A clan name is much more important than a surname as it refers to the ancestor from which a person is descended. Madiba was the name of a Thembu chief who ruled in the Transkei in the 18th century. It is considered very polite to use someone's clan name.



Tata – This is Xhosa word means "father" and is a term of endearment that many South Africans use for Mr Mandela. Since he is a father figure to many, they call him Tata regardless of their own age.


Khulu – Mr Mandela is often called "Khulu", which means great, paramount, grand. The speaker means "Great One" when referring to Mr Mandela in this way. It is also a shortened form of the isiXhosa word "uBawomkhulu" for "grandfather".


Dalibhunga – This is the name Mr Mandela was given at the age of 16 once he had undergone initiation, the traditional Xhosa rite of passage into manhood. It means "creator or founder of the council" or "convenor of the dialogue". The correct use of this name when greeting Mr Mandela is "Aaah! Dalibhunga".


Other names – Of course, Mr Mandela's family use many terms of endearment for him. His grandchildren use variants of "Grandfather", like "Granddad" for instance. Mrs Graça Machel frequently uses "Papa".

Pray for Mandela...

An update on the condition of former President, Nelson Mandela, is only expected later on Sunday. The Presidency last reported on Saturday that Madiba is in a serious but stable condition in a Pretoria hospital.

Madiba is battling a recurring lung infection. There has been no update from the Presidency since they made the announcement on Saturday.

Journalists from local and international media organisations continue to camp outside a Pretoria hospital, where it's believed the former statesman is receiving treatment.

His daughter, Makiziwe, was also spotted at
the hospital by journalists yesterday. The same vehicle, in which she drove on Saturday, was spotted driving into the premises a short while ago.

The Justice, Crime Prevention and Security (JCPS) Cluster has also joined millions of local and international communities in wishing Mandela, a speedy recovery.

The JCPS held its first meeting at the state-of-the-art government communication building in Hatfield, Pretoria this morning Justice Minister and Chair of the JCPS, Jeff Radebe says Cabinet wishes Madiba well.
