Than why are they seen here mugging for the camera?

Barack Obama said Friday that he did not need a “photo op” with Nelson Mandela, saying the “last thing” he wanted to do was be intrusive at a time when the anti-apartheid icon’s family are concerned about his health.

However, the president did not rule out a meeting with Mandela, whose ex-wife Winnie Madikizela-Mandela said Friday had made a “great improvement” compared to a few days ago.

On Tuesday, Mandela's daughter Zindzi said that her father “opened his eyes and gave me a smile” when she told him Obama was coming.
