On a lighter side of things, an interesting question has been asked. If the election outcome was based on SA artist, Rasta's paintings, who would win between Cyril Ramaphosa and Julius Malema? The answer is quite obvious when comparing two portraits of the men.
The 2019 election is a serious event for South Africans, but it wouldn't be a truly South African experience without a pinch of humour added to it.
South Africans have a wonderful way of finding the 'funny' in just about everything and the elections are no exception.
TimesLIVE posed the question: Who would win the election if it all depended on the skill and talent of local artist Rasta, famous for not being all-too-accurate in his portraits of famous South Africans?
Since the question involves politicians, the portraits that Rasta did of ANC leader, Cyril Ramaphosa, and EFF leader, Julius Malema, are compared.
If this was the deal-breaker, EFF's Deputy-President Floyd Shivambu's prediction of a new government would become a reality for sure.
Rasta got a lot of attention after he did a pretty impressive painting of Malema at the EFF Tshela Thupa rally.
His painting of Ramaphosa, dubbed 'Ramabuza' by unimpressed South Africans, didn't receive a lot of compliments though.
On another funny note - if the outcome of the election was based on social media, the EFF would once again walk away triumphantly.
Briefly.co.za reported that the EFF is stealing the show, with the biggest following so far.
