As former President Nelson Mandela spends his 19th day at the Medi-Clinic Heart Hospital in Pretoria, the wall surrounding the hospital has become a 'must-see' location, cementing the hospital place in history. The public seems to be flocking to this wall to visit the site to take photographs and experience the ambiance surrounding the hospital. 

 

 

Burning candles, bouquets of flowers, paintings and hundreds of messages have appeared the entrance of the Pretoria hospital on Wednesday, where former President Nelson Mandela is spending his 19th day, the last three in a critical condition.

 

Well-wishers have consistently registered support for Mandela in different forms, transforming the Medi-Clinic Heart Hospital's security wall into a miniature art gallery.

 

The video below depicts the catalogue of presents, get-well-soon cards, mainly handwritten on cardboard, eclipsing the hospital's signpost at the entrance on Celliers Street.

 

The wall has become an outlet for the public to show their concern and send their well-wishes to Madiba, reminiscent to what was seen in the UK after the loss of Princess Diana in 1997.

 

It seems to have become a 'must-see' place, cementing the hospital place in history, as the public seems to be flocking to the wall to take photographs and visit the site to experience the ambiance surrounding the hospital.
