The South African government says former President Nelson Mandela’s condition remains serious but stable, his third day in a Pretoria hospital.

The office of President Jacob Zuma said in a statement Monday that 94-year-old Mandela’s condition is “unchanged.”

Mandela was taken to a hospital early Saturday to be treated for a recurring lung infection, and at that time Zuma’s office described the anti-apartheid leader’s condition as “serious but stable.”

On Sunday, members of Mandela’s family were seen visiting the hospital where the Mandela, Nobel Peace Prize laureate, is believed to be staying.

Mandela has been hospitalized several times in recent months. In April, doctors diagnosed him with pneumonia and drained fluid from his chest.
