South Africa’s President Zuma admitted to hospital
South Africa’s President Jacob Zuma was on Saturday admitted to hospital for tests, his office announced.
“Doctors are satisfied with his condition,” his office said in a statement without giving details of his ailment.
But on Friday Zuma “was advised to rest following a demanding election and transition programme to the new administration,” said the presidency.
Two weeks ago, the 72-year-old Zuma was sworn in for second term after his African National Congress (ANC) party won the May 7 elections with an overwhelming 62 per cent of the vote.
