Nelson Mandela: Winnie 'grateful' to media

Nelson Mandela's former wife has said she is "grateful" for the media's presence, as the former South African president shows "great improvement" on a few days ago.

Winnie Mandela's statement made reference to her sister Makaziwe's comments on Thursday, when she criticised the media, describing them as "vultures".

She said: "If sometimes we sound bitter, it is because we are dealing with a very difficult situation. You can understand our emotions."
