Nelson Mandela Exhibition Opened By Jacob Zuma
Nelson Mandela Exhibition

South Africa's President Jacob Zuma has opened an exhibition about the life of the country's first black leader, Nelson Mandela, in Johannesburg.

Mr Mandela's Nobel Peace Prize, presidential briefcase and handwritten notes are among the items on display at the Nelson Mandela Centre of Memory.

Mr Zuma earlier visited Mr Mandela, 95, at his Johannesburg home, where he is receiving intensive care.

He remains in a stable but critical condition, the presidency said.

The statement was issued after Mr Mandela's ex-wife Winnie Madikizela-Mandela said he was unable to speak but used facial expressions to communicate.

Mr Mandela was no longer talking "because of all the tubes that are in his mouth to clear [fluid from] the lungs", Ms Madikizela-Mandela told South Africa's Sunday Independent newspaper.

The presidency said in a statement that Mr Mandela was continuing to respond to treatment.

In September Mr Mandela returned to his home in the suburb of Houghton, near the new exhibition, after nearly three months in hospital with a recurring lung infection.

Mr Mandela won the the Nobel Peace Prize laureate in 1993 for leading the fight against white minority rule and preaching reconciliation with the white community despite being imprisoned for 27 years.

He became South Africa's first black president in 1994 and stepped down five years later.
