The former African leader Nelson Mandela has been reported to be unresponsive (Global Grind).

According to CBS the 94 year old Mandela hasn’t open his eyes in days.

The ambulance carrying Nelson Mandela had engine problem so the Nobel Peace Prize laureate was transferred to another ambulance, after waiting on the highway for 40 minutes.

The South African government said in a statement that doctors are satisfied that the Nobel Peace Prize laureate suffered “no harm” at the time.

Mandela was taken from his home in the Johannesburg neighborhood of Houghton to a hospital in Pretoria, the capital, about 50 kilometers (31 miles) away.

“The African National Congress once again calls upon all concerned parties including the media to afford President Mandela and his family respect and privacy during this difficult time,” the statement said.
Mandela was jailed for 27 years under white racist rule and was released in 1990. He then played a leading role in steering the divided country from the apartheid era to democracy, becoming South Africa’s first black president in all-race elections in 1994. As a result of his sacrifice and peacemaking efforts, he is seen by many around the world as a symbol of reconciliation (Associated Press).
