Nozizwe Madlala-Routledge (News24)

Cape Town - Former deputy health minister Nozizwe Madlala-Routledge has explained the motivations behind the Sidikiwe Vukani  "Vote No" campaign, which was launched on Tuesday.

Speaking to News24, Madlala-Routledge said the campaign is designed to encourage greater public participation in the upcoming national and provincial elections.

She and former intelligence minister Ronnie Kasrils launched the Sidikiwe (We are fed up) - Vukani (Wake up) campaign at the University of the Witwatersrand, calling on registered voters to either vote tactically for minority parties or spoil their ballot paper by writing "NO" across it. The aim is to give notice to the ANC and DA that voters should no longer be "taken for granted".

Madlala-Routledge told News24 that the campaign urges those who are disgruntled to "use their vote, which is a very powerful tool that we have, to express their disillusionment".
