JOHANNESBURG — Doctors are doing all they can to improve Nelson Mandela’s health as the 94-year-old icon spent a fourth day in the hospital for a recurring lung infection, South Africa’s president said Tuesday, as two of Mandela’s daughters visited their father.

In a possible sign of the seriousness of Mandela’s condition, daughter Zenani Mandela — South Africa’s ambassador to Argentina — arrived at the hospital to see her father. Former wife Winnie Madikizela-Mandela also visited.

Mandela’s doctors briefed President Jacob Zuma on the former president’s health late Monday, the president said in a statement. Mandela remained in serious but stable condition, it said.

School children gathered outside his home in a Johannesburg suburb on Tuesday and sang songs expressing hope the former president would recover.
