Tony Ehrenreich casts his vote

2011-05-18 07:44

Cape Town - ANC Cape Town mayoral candidate Tony Ehrenreich was among the first in the queue to cast his vote at the Uitsig High School in Cape Town on Wednesday.

Speaking after voting, Ehrenreich expressed his happiness with the process and his confidence of winning the mayor's seat.

He said the ANC had an extensive engagement to get its supporters out to vote and, if they all turned out, the ANC would take Cape Town.

Ehrenreich said his supporters were enthusiastic about the election and he was looking forward to working with all of the people of Cape Town when he became mayor.

"We want to build a united Cape Town, rich and poor, black and white," he said.

Ehrenreich had a sea of messages from voting stations all over the city reporting lengthy queues.

      @Loodpil. No. God help Cape Town if he wins and become mayor.

    United? There is nothing that has come out of his mouth that has ever suggested that he wants united anything. Division, finger pointing and destruction. He has presided over the largest job destruction policy for 10 years and could not manage a fruit stall, yet wants to run a city. no thanks.

    Dirk - so typical of a DA supporter. You always know what's best for next person. Stop stereotyping. I certainly don't think you wualified to make a statement on the state of any one's mind as well. It does not mean that a large coloured population in the Western Cape votes for the DA that naturally every coloured (or any other race for that matter) should. Its called democracy and freedom of choice for a very good reason. Don't mind other people's voting choices. Do for yourself what's best and vote for who you believe in. No one is criticising your vote for whoever you wish. Let's be a bit respectful.

      Dear Faaiqa, I am a DA supporter and I fully agree with you that stereotyping is wrong and that we should respect freedom of choice etc. I especially agree with your point about being respectful of others. However, in your very first sentence ("so typical of a DA supporter. You always know what's best for next person") you do exactly the same by stereotyping all DA supporters. Even worse, Dirk never said that he is a DA supporter. Strange - it seems to me that while your comment has a lot of merit you spoil it with stereotyping that is at least as bad as his, which is a pity...

      @how_now...My friend it would appear the education system has not failed you like so many others on this site. I thank you for your intelligent comment regarding my previous post.

    We want to turn Constantia into a shanty-town is more like it.

      Dirk - 2011-05-18 09:30

      You got my vote my good sir. As long as I can rape and steal stuff all day everyday I shall call you my KING.

      BigMoose - 2011-05-18 09:52

      Thanks, Dirk. We shall be nationalising the wine farms and distributing papsakke to all the poor and thirsty.

      Dirk - 2011-05-18 10:02

      Viva Big Moose Viva!!!! Powa to da people!!!

      Insanely_Sane - 2011-05-18 11:52

      BigMoose&Dirk, i couldnt agree with you guys even more! medi-clinics and public hospitals will adjust to the same standards as Joburg Gen, forget exposed toilets being an issue, the N2 has more than enough grass for cr@pping facilities for the masses. this should be ANC's new mission statement. "If we win Cape Town, please set your watch back 10 years"

      Shorts1 - 2011-05-18 12:49

      If the ANC win Cape Town, we will all have to watch for ten years as one of our major cities goes backwards. Five years for the ANC to mess up everything that the DA has achieved, followed by another five years in which the DA again works tirelessly to get it back to where it is today.

    If he had any brains he would ave vted DA.

      Nsudu@Ekhaya - 2011-05-18 11:59

  • Flexy - 2011-05-18 10:24

    Your comments make me sick. I often wonder if you do have children and so how you are brainwashing them. This is not good for either side, worse still not for our country. My tumbs up to you sister Faaiqa

      Dirk - 2011-05-18 10:57

      Some cyclizine should clear that sick feeling right up...

  • george07 - 2011-05-18 10:43

    why didn't they use vavi as their poster boy? i smell a rat .

      Dirk - 2011-05-18 10:55

      That's not a rat you are smelling,it's the ANC ward member....LoL!!

      Nsudu@Ekhaya - 2011-05-18 12:02

      Tony is from the WC, he is the Mayoral Candidate in a city he knows and understands, i think u need to read at least read something about politicals, only than can u "smell" something hold on lets smell too...Helen Zille should be the mayoral candidate in KZN....mhmmmmm

      tryanything - 2011-05-18 16:11

      The rats would not like it.

      Steve Wonderboy - 2011-05-18 19:58

      Just because he is from the Western Cape does not make him any less of a douchebag. His plan basically is to make everyone equally poor so that we can suffer the same. Integration my ass! Why not consider uplifting the poor so that they too can reach towards becoming wealthy?

  • george07 - 2011-05-18 12:01

    @dirk agree with you 100%.using the coloured vote can tony prostitute himself again?and what about the frenchman telling people to go back again and occupy land illegally? stupid and immature.for a million plus a year you will do anything just to secure cheap votes. stupid anc.

  • Nsudu@Ekhaya - 2011-05-18 12:05

    Tony E for Mayor....back to Basics

      greentomato - 2011-05-18 16:09

      You will definitely be going back to basics mate, he is nothing but a commie windbag.

  • Elizabeth - 2011-05-18 14:10

  • Slapper - 2011-05-18 15:17

    The Man is a Red Rag waving fanatic at present. Put him in the Mayors job and he will either skin the Business community or the workers..... or both.

  • greentomato - 2011-05-18 16:05

    Tony can go and cast his seed! Manually.

  • greentomato - 2011-05-18 16:07

    Rip up the bicycle lanes Tony's coming.

  • fbyr - 2011-05-18 23:28

    Tony should move out to the Eastern Cape - I hear they have some car factories there that need closing down.
