America’s First Lady Michelle Obama met former South African President Nelson Mandela on Tuesday as part of her week long visit to Africa.

The 30 minute meeting was unscheduled due to concerns over 92-year old Mandela’s health, but a relative reported the former President to be in good form.

Michelle Obama also met one of President Jacob Zuma’s wives, Nompumelelo Ntuli. She did not meet the polygamous President himself as he was attending an event in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
