Durban - Friedrich Roggenkamp, 75, was turned away from the voting station at George Campbell Technical School in Durban on Wednesday morning after IEC systems reflected that he was deceased. 

"I have always voted, look at all my stickers," he said, pointing to other registration markers in his ID book. 

Roggenkamp said that come the next elections he would likely not vote and intended returning to his home country of Germany, after living in South Africa for almost 30 years.
