Maimane votes in Dobsonville

Johannesburg - Democratic Alliance Gauteng premier candidate Mmusi Maimane voted at the Presbyterian Church in Dobsonville, Soweto on Wednesday.

"I am voting for change...there is no secret about it," he said as he walked into the voting station, a street from his mother's house.

A few people stood outside the voting station before he arrived and no one was in the line to vote.

The media that had been waiting outside flocked into the station, with members of the public following, causing chaos at the door.

The presiding officer urged those who had finished voting to make way and those who were not voting to move.

Maimane, who was accompanied by his mother, voted, followed by a throng of journalists. He posed for the cameras with a ballot paper.

"I am happy to have voted here where I grew up. This is a very special place for me," he told journalists outside the church.

He said the party was confident because more people had been supporting it.
