Nelson Mandela remains in critical condition in a Pretoria hospital this morning.
The archbishop of Cape Town prayed with 94-year-old anti-apartheid leader’s family on Tuesday, calling for a "peaceful, perfect end." The family is said to be meeting to discuss the situation.
CNN's Robyn Curnow is live over the phone in Pretoria following his condition and the state of the nation.
The front page of a leading newspaper there reads “The Final Struggle” in the headline, Curnow reports.
“There really does seem to be quite a somber atmosphere here, as people try to come to grips with the fact that he might not be here for very much longer.”
