Former President Nelson Mandela is doing well at his home in Houghton Johannesburg.


Madiba, who was released from hospital early this month, is recovering from a recurring lung infection.


President Jacob Zuma, ANC deputy president Cyril Ramaphosa, and national chairperson Baleka Mbete visited the elder statesman on Monday.


The SABC had exclusive video access during the visit, which can be seen on SABC3 at 6:30pm on Monday.


In the rare glimpse of Madiba, he was looking relaxed and well, surrounded by family.


Mandela's medical team was on hand to brief the Zuma, who said Madiba was looking well.


"He is in good shape. We had some conversation with him, shook hands, smiled. He’s really up and about, he’s stabilised. We’re very happy he is fine."
