The president of south africa released a statement hours ago ensuring he would receive the same level of care at home as he did in the hospital. The president said his home has been reconfigured to accommodate his medical needs, and the very same personnel will be administering the care in johannesburg. There were false reports yesterday about him being released. The actual release overnight was not a total surprise. He has been hospitalized since june 8 for a lung infection.
