Shilowa supports Vote No campaign

Cape Town - Former Gauteng premier Mbhazima Shilowa has come out in support of the Vote No! Campaign launched recently by former intelligence minister Ronnie Kasrils and former deputy health minister Nozizwe Madlala-Routledge, reports the Sunday Independent.

The "Sidikiwe! Vukani! Vote no!" campaign calls on South Africans to either vote for a minority party, or spoil their ballots. It was launched at the University of the Witwatersrand on Tuesday by Kasrils and Madlala-Routledge.

According to them, the ANC has allowed corruption, among other vices, to flourish in the government.

The Sunday Independent reports that writing in the Eastern Cape’s Daily Dispatch on Friday, Shilowa said their critics were implying they should speak in whispers against the Marikana massacre, Nkandla and the influence the Gupta family allegedly had on the ANC and President Jacob Zuma.

He said that both Kasrils and Madlala-Routledge commanded respect for their roles in the struggle and the government, adding that neither was treacherous or treasonous nor were they fools or idiots but concerned citizens who chose to speak out.
