Mzansi celebrities are hoping that their little video or snaps on social media will encourage others to go and vote today, in the 2019 South African national elections.

One of the celebs is Dineo Moeketsi, who took to her Instagram account to share a short video. She wrote: "Heading to the polls and the weather agrees with the positivity surrounding this #XsêDay for the #SAElections2019."

She encouraged her followers to vote by saying: "You know what's so beautiful, we actually have options, unlike our great-grandparents... and we have to be responsible about our future and be intentional about our choices of this country because ultimately we do have a say in that... so I will see you in the queues."

Afrikaans singer, Bobby van Jaarsveld, also shared a snap of the voting queues in Salt Rock, Durban earlier today.

He wrote: "Just voted for a better South Africa."

SA comedian, John Vlismas, also shared a video to encourage people to vote, but his video had a pinch of sarcasm.

He said we should all go and vote as it is important, and "the idiot we've all chosen the most gets to carry out his idiocy for the rest of the country to follow".

Check out his video below.

Somizi also shared a video and snap earlier today, encouraging SA citizens to vote.

Meanwhile, earlier today, Briefly.co.za reported that veteran actress, Nomhle Nkonyeni, has vowed not to cast her vote in the 2019 SA national elections today.

Last week, the 77-year-old was bestowed with the Order of Ikhamanga in Silver by President Cyril Ramaphosa. Other performers who also received the prestigious Order were Mary Twala and Yvonne Chaka Chaka. The award recognises the achievements of South Africans in the creative fields of arts, culture, literature, music, journalism and sport. But Nkonyeni said it did not mean anything to her.

According to News24, the renowned actress claimed that performers have been taken for granted by the SA government and preferred that the government did not mix politics with arts.
