LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) -- The great-grandson of Nelson Mandela has traveled to Lawrence to accept a leadership prize on behalf of the former South African president.

Speaking Sunday at the Robert J. Dole Institute of Politics, Luvuyo Mandela says the lasting legacy of his great-grandfather is one of public service. The Lawrence Journal-World (http://is.gd/ZWEYEw) reports that the elder Mandela is the latest recipient of the Dole Leadership Prize. The prize is worth $25,000 and is named after the former U.S. senator and Republican presidential candidate. The money will benefit the Nelson Mandela Centre of Memory at the Nelson Mandela Foundation.

Nelson Mandela spent 27 years in prison during white minority rule. He led South Africa through a delicate transition to all-race elections that propelled him to the presidency in 1994. He's now 95.
