Mandla Mandela and family vote in Mvezo

The chief of Mvezo and former President Nelson Mandela’s grandson Mandla Mandela and his family have braved the chilly weather and voted in Mvezo outside Mthatha, Eastern Cape.


Mandela was accompanied by his mother Nolusapho and one of his wives. He says he and his family dedicate this day to all the heroes and heroines who sacrificed their lives fighting for the freedom. 

“It’s always an exciting moment for us as a family first and foremost because when we come to elections we remember the path that we have undertaken from my grandfather’sLong Walk to Freedom, the sacrifices he has made together with the collective that he worked with. So to us it is a very emotional day where we remember the many heroes and heroines of our country that gave us the freedom we enjoy today.”
