So important are the elections to this East London resident that he left to vote while his wife was in labour. 32-year-old Jalil Abbas was the first in line to vote after leaving his wife in hospital as she was about to give birth to their child.
Abbas got to the voting station at 5.30am and was ready to vote for the ANC. He believes that the ANC will deliver on its promises and create jobs. He also said that he believes in Ramaphosa's leadership.
He even took to social media to excitedly share the big day with fellow ANC supporters.
He called on the ruling party to increase tourism activity in his hometown of East London as it is a very "beautiful" and "clean" place.
Jabbas was already standing in front of a long queue of people behind him ready to cast their own votes.
Happy voting, Jabbas, and we hope your wife gives birth to a healthy bundle of joy!
