Zindzi Mandela said in an interview on Tuesday that the South African leader may be going home "anytime soon,” the Associated Press reported.


"I visited him yesterday and he was watching television with headphones… He gave us a huge smile and raised his hand ... He responds with his eyes and his hands," said Mandela’s daughter, adding that her father was gaining "energy and strength."

On June 8, Mandela was taken to hospital in Pretoria to be treated for a recurring lung infection.

The Nobel Peace laureate became South Africa’s first Black president in the country's first multi-racial elections in 1994. He is called Africa’s elder statesman and is revered across the world for his role in ending apartheid in his homeland.

Seen as South Africa’s moral compass, Mandela announced his retirement from public life in 2004, but continued to make a few public appearances.
