Johannesburg - Former intelligence minister Ronnie Kasrils is unable to tell people to unequivocally vote for the ANC, the Mail&Guardian reported on Friday.
"I have been a person who was so involved in mobilisation for ANC votes," he was quoted as saying in an interview with the newspaper.
"I must confess that I can't do this today..."
Kasrils never thought he would come to a point where he did not know what to tell others to do.
"The ANC has had 20 years to prove itself. If it hasn't proved [itself], then I'm saying: 'Listen to your head and your heart'."
Kasrils said it was no good creating a spoilt ballot.
"I have said to people... it's no good going into a polling booth and just crossing everything out.
"If you want to do something like that, as a group, issue a statement expressing why you feel that you can't vote at this particular point in time."
