Mandela’s health is in God’s hands now, says ex-wife Winnie

As the world prayed for the speedy recovery of ailing peace icon Nelson Mandela, his former wife said that it was extremely painful to see the anti-apartheid leader’s present state of health but it was ‘God’s wish’.

Winnie Madikizela-Mandela, who was married to the former South African president from 1958 to 1996, dismissed any suggestion that the family was discussing whether to end life support to 94-year-old Mandela.

'It was nonsense to suggest we needed to take a decision to pull the tubes. It was hurtful, cruel and extremely painful to see him going through what he’s going through,’ she said.
