Struggle veteran Ahmed Kathrada (87) is recovering well in a Johannesburg hospital following brain surgery on Saturday‚ his foundation has said.
“Ahmed Kathrada is in a stable condition and is recovering well following the operation‚” director for the Ahmed Kathrada foundation Neesahan Balton on Monday afternoon said .
“We wish to once again thank the public for the outpouring of support and well-wishes during this period. We hope that you continue keeping Mr Kathrada in your thoughts and prayers.”
In a post on its website‚ the foundation said Kathrada had initially been admitted for dehydration but doctors picked up on a clot‚ which they felt needed to be removed immediately.
In the same post Kathrada was described as being in good spirits despite being ill and that the operation was a success.
“However‚ it would be some time before he fully recovers‚” it quoted Balton as saying.- TMG Digital
