Mandela has been treated there for a recurring lung infection since June 8.
Six bikers from the Ride-With motorcycle club in Mahikeng, North West rode 350km to wish Mandela better health.
Secretary of the club, Hendrick Metsileng, said they saw it fit to come to the hospital to pray for Mandela, his family and South Africa.
“He means a lot to us. He was kept in prison for many years to liberate this country,” said Metsileng.
The bikers lit a candle and prayed outside the hospital.
They delivered a message on a poster with an image of a smiling Mandela looking through a prison window.
To celebrate Mandela’s legacy Metsileng said they would collect 67 pairs of shoes on July 18, to mark Mandela’s birthday.
The shoes would be given to poor farm school pupils around Mahikeng.
Cedric Cedric from Port Elizabeth said he believed God could heal Mandela. He played inspirational messages through speakers from his car parked near the hospital. The car was pasted with messages proclaiming that Mandela could be healed.
“I believe he can be healed. God spared him for 95 years. He can be healed through our prayers,” he said.
Cedric said he received a prophetic message two weeks ago to give inspirational messages at the hospital.
