Well-wishers messages to South African struggle veteran Ahmed Kathrada have been flowing in wishing him a speedy recovery.
Kathrada underwent minor surgery to remove a blood clot on the brain. He is now being treated for post-surgical complications.
Doctors say his age is the major complicating factor which is slowing down his recovering.
At 87, Kathrada is one of three Rivonia trialists still alive today.
