By Associated Press

JOHANNESBURG (AP) — Relatives of Nelson Mandela have visited the former South African president in a hospital where he is being treated for a lung infection.

Zenani Dlamini, one of Mandela's daughters, was among those visiting the 94-year-old anti-apartheid leader on Saturday, his eighth day in a Pretoria hospital.

President Jacob Zuma said Thursday that Mandela was continuing to improve but remains in serious condition.

Mandela spent 27 years in prison during white racist rule. He was freed in 1990 and became South Africa's first black president in elections in 1994.
