Mandela voted Cope, party claims
Johannesburg - Cope is convinced former president Nelson Mandela voted for them, its Johannesburg mayoral candidate said on Wednesday.
"Mandela has voted Cope. I'm convinced," said Preddy Mothopeng in a text message to Sapa.
"For the first time in his political career he made a secret vote, changing his voting announcement."
Mothopeng said Mandela voted for his party because its leader Mosiuoa Lekota was still "serving" the cause they both believed in.
