President Jacob Zuma has called on the nation to pray for Nelson Mandela.
"All of us in the country should accept the fact that Madiba is now old. He is 95 years [sic] and that therefore, as he ages, his health will begin to trouble him".
"What we need to do as a country is to pray for him ... to ensure that the doctors do their work so that he can come out of hospital," he added.
