Nelson Mandela casts his vote

Voting came to a temporary halt at the Killarney Country Club in Houghton, Johannesburg as South Africa's favourite citizen, former president Nelson Mandela, cast his vote in the country's 2009 general elections.

The house where Mandela lived

Nelson Mandela moved into 8115 Vilakazi Street in Orlando West, Soweto in 1946. His second wife, Winnie, moved in with him in 1958. He returned there briefly in 1990, saying: "It was only then that I knew in my heart that I had left prison." Restored at a cost of R9-million, the house has re-opened to the public.
