DA leader Mmusi Maimane placed his ballot paper in a voting box in front of spectators and the media in Dobsonville, Soweto on Wednesday.
"This vote is about saying let Mmusi Maimane run this country so that we can take it forward, so that we can make sure we clean out this country," says Maimane.
"It is about building a government for all – black, white, Muslim, Christian," he added.
