Nelson Mandela's grandson, Mandla Mandela, moved three sons' graves to his own village. Now the family is moving them back.

Family anguish over the health of Nelson Mandela has been deepened by arguments over his final resting place, prompting a power shift that could see his eldest daughter emerge as the head of South Africa's most revered clan.

Makaziwe Mandela, 60, is now believed to be in line to assume the title after Mandla, the anti-apartheid hero's favored grandson and traditional heir, conceded that he had "overplayed" his hand in a macabre dispute involving the exhumation of Mandela's three dead children.
