President Cyril Ramaphosa has taken his election campaign to new levels, he contacted three A-list celebs, AKA, DJ Tira and Bonang Matheba, on Instagram calls to personally chat to them about them voting today.
Cyril Ramaphosa contacted Mzansi music legend, AKA, to find out whether he had cast his vote already for the 2019 South African national elections. AKA was very humbled by the call.
AKA thanked the President for all he has done for the country and encouraged others to vote too. While on the Instagram call, AKA, also asked uBaba to wait so he could introduce his woman to him, and out popped DJ Zinhle, who also said she had been to the voting stations earlier and cast her vote.
Looks the president's campaigning is on point, knowing the amount of social media followers that both AKA and DJ Zinhe have. Check out the video below.
He also called media personality, Bonang Matheba. Bonang told the president that she was already at the voting station ready to cast her vote. Check out the video below.
DJ Tira also received a call from the current president of South Africa, Cyril Ramaphosa. DJ Tira was on a flight to Durban so he could vote.
Meanwhile earlier today, Briefly.co.za reported that an IEC staff member got on the wrong side of EFF leader Julius Malema today after insisting that his wife Mantwa Matlala-Malema remove her false nail before casting her vote.
The IEC has since released a statement confirming that there is no such rule. An IEC official irked Julius Malema today when they insisted that his wife Mantwa Matlala-Malema removed her false nails before voting.
The couple were in Seshego, Limpopo this morning when the incident occurred, with Malema commenting that: "There was some IEC staff member who said to my wife she must take off her nail so that they can put a mark and I found that bizarre. You cannot have such a patriarchal arrangement happening inside the voting station. The electoral officer came and said she can vote with her nail."
