There is news circulating online, especially on Facebook and other social networks that Mandela is dead.
This is bogus, as the former president and first black African to rule South Africa after the Apartheid era is currently at home and doing well.
Madiba, as he is commonly called was discharged from hospital in Pretoria on Saturday after spending nine days for treatment of pneumonia.
This blog has a correspondent in South Africa, and has confirmed that he is alive.
Please stop spreading the rumour of his death, and instead join the millions of his admirers and supporters to pray for his speedy recovery.
