Former South African President Mandela waves as he leaves after casting his vote at a polling station in Houghton
Former South African President Nelson Mandela waves as he leaves after casting his vote at a polling station in Houghton April 22, 2009. South Africans voted on Wednesday in an election that poses the toughest challenge to the African National Congress since the end of apartheid and could weaken its overwhelming dominance in parliament. The ANC looks assured a fourth straight win since defeating white minority rule in 1994 under Nelson Mandela and will make its leader Jacob Zuma president weeks after he was able to get corruption charges dropped on a technicality.
