(AP) The doctors treating former South African leader Nelson Mandela believe he should remain in Johannesburg for now to be close to medical facilities that can provide care to the 94-year-old.


Presidential spokesman Mac Maharaj said Thursday that doctors think it is necessary and good that Mandela, who was released from a hospital Wednesday evening, stay in his home in the Johannesburg neighborhood of Houghton.


Maharaj spoke to eNCA, a South African television news channel.


In recent years, Mandela has lived in the village of Qunu in Eastern Cape province, where he grew up. Mandela, a leader of the struggle against apartheid, was admitted Dec. 8 to a hospital, where he was treated for a lung infection and also had a procedure to remove gallstones.
