    JOHANNESBURG: South African President Jacob Zuma has dedicated his ANC’s landslide victory in this week’s elections to Nelson Mandela, 20 years to the day after the late liberation leader’s inauguration. “We dedicate our victory to Madiba’s memory, and pledge to continue taking forward his legacy and that of his peers and forebears,” Zuma said on Saturday, using Mandela’s clan name. The party’s 62.15-percent share of the vote meant an “overwhelming mandate” for a fifth term in government since the end of white-minority rule, said Zuma, speaking publicly for the first time on the vote results.
