An ambulance believed to be transporting former president Nelson Mandela arrives at the home of Mandela in Johannesburg, Saturday, April 6, 2013. The South African Presidency has confirmed that  Mandela has been discharged after spending nine days in hospital in Pretoria. Spokesman Mac Maharaj says the elder statesman was discharged, “following a sustained and gradual improvement in his general condition,” and thanked all South Africans and people around the world for their support. He says Mandela will now receive home based high care. Mandela was admitted to hospital on March 27 with pneumonia. Since then the 94-year-old former statesman has had fluid drained from his lungs to ease his breathing. (AP Photo)
