I am a politically retarded voter, aged 32, who qualified from the University of Cape Town.

I previously voted for the ANC and was motivated by the reasonableness of Trevor Manuel and Nelson Mandela.

The R246?million house of President Jacob Zuma has dented the image of the ANC, which also started the dangerous propaganda that the Public Protector is a DA member.

Manuel has even condemned the amount of money spent on the president’s house. Yet Gwede Mantashe and his political colleagues have described Manuel as a “free agent”.

Young South Africans, black and white, must read all the news reports.

The bottom line is that we are treated by the president, the ANC and their spin doctors as a retarded bunch of voters.

Convince me why I should vote ANC again.

Do not call me a “dirty vote”. And don’t call Manuel a “free agent”.

He is a man who, as finance minister, managed our finances intelligently and honestly under the guidance of Nelson Mandela and Thabo Mbeki.
