JOHANNESBURG (AP) - Nelson Mandela has now spent a month in the hospital.
South Africa's anti-apartheid hero was admitted June 8 for a recurring lung infection. A month later the former president has seen an outpouring of love and support from South Africa and around the world.
South Africa's City Press newspaper reported Sunday that since his admittance to a Pretoria hospital Graca Machel, Mandela's wife, has not left her husband's side for more than three hours.
Mandela spent 27 years in prison during white rule. He led the tense shift from apartheid to democracy two decades ago in a spirit of reconciliation.
A Mandela grandson was removed from his post of tribal chief on Saturday following a family feud started because the grandson moved the buried bodies of three of Mandela's children.
