President Zuma discharged from hospital
09 June 2014
President Jacob Zuma was discharged from hospital yesterday evening, 8 June 2014.
“The President will continue to rest for a few days and will work mainly from home during the rest period. We thank the public for the messages of support and good wishes that have been received since the news of the hospitalisation of the President was made public," said the Minister in the Presidency, Mr Jeff Radebe.
The President undertakes two major medical examinations per annum, the first one in January and the second one in June. This time round, the doctors felt he needed to be hospitalised for a thorough check up following a demanding schedule. The doctors are happy with the results.
Earlier media reports that the President had made certain "unscheduled visits" to Durban hospitals early this year are incorrect. All visits are booked in advance and those mentioned were part of the annual first semester check-ups.
