(AP) South Africa's presidency says Nelson Mandela has undergone successful surgery to remove gallstones.


The presidency said the 94-year-old Mandela underwent the surgery Saturday. The presidency said Mandela's doctors wanted to treat a recurrent lung infection before putting him through the surgery.


The statement said: The procedure was successful and Madiba is recovering. It referred to Mandela by his clan name as a sign of affection.


Mandela has been hospitalized since Dec. 8.


Mandela is revered for being a leader of the struggle against racist white rule in South Africa. He served one five-year term as president before retiring from public life.
