Winnie Mandela said 'there is great improvement in his health' Mandela is receiving treatment at the Mediclinic heart hospital in Pretoria. Mandela's close family gathered yesterday at his rural homestead to discuss the failing health of the South African anti-apartheid icon who was fighting for his life in hospital. Messages of support poured in from around the world for the Nobel Peace Prize winner, who spent 27 years behind bars for his struggle under white minority rule and went on to become South Africa's first black president.
