ANC stalwarts urge voters to spoil ballots

2014-04-13 12:30

Cape Town - In an unprecedented move, former minister Ronnie Kasrils and former deputy health minister Nozizwe Madlala-Routledge have called on South Africans to take a stand against fraud and corruption by spoiling their votes in this year’s elections.

According to the Sunday Independent, the campaign, Sidikiwe! Vukani! Vote No!, by the two senior ANC members is to be officially launched at Wits University on Tuesday.

However, ANC struggle veterans and loyalists have slammed the move by the two saying they are disillusioned, disgruntled and bitter.

The Sunday Independent reported that the aim of the campaign is to get people to either not vote for the ruling party or to spoil their ballots in protest against corruption and current government policies.

In an interview last month with the Mail & Guardian, Kasrils said he was unable to tell people to unequivocally vote for the ANC. He said at the time that the ANC has had 20 years to prove itself.
