CAPE TOWN - Nelson Mandela's eldest grandson Mandla Mandela said he was hoping the application to pardon AbaThembu King Buyelekhaya Dalindyebo would be given the necessary attention it requires.

Mandela cast his vote in Mvezo Great Place with his family on Wednesday afternoon.

The African National Congress is still popular in Mvezo as residents vow to give the party another chance.

“We hope that the application will be given all the necessary attention that it requires.

"We as the AbaThembu nation look forward to his return.”
