Nelson Mandela votes in SA election


Former South African President Nelson Mandela has voted in the general election at the Transvaal Automobile Club in Houghton, Johannesburg.

The ruling ANC - led by Jacob Zuma - is expected to win, but it could lose its two-thirds majority in parliament which allows it to change the constitution. The result of the election is not expected to be formally declared until Saturday.
