As part of strengthening the country’s democracy, African National Congress (ANC) Ekurhuleni Chief Whip Jongizizwe Dlabathi is set to cast his special vote at Sakhelwe Primary School on Monday in Kwa-Thema.
Special voting in South Africa in the 2019 national and provincial elections will take place between Monday and Tuesday, as per the election timetable.
By law, special votes can only be cast on the dates specified in the election timetable and no exceptions can be made.
Over 774 000 South Africans are set to cast their special votes between Monday and Tuesday.
Election officials will also visit just over 450 000 voters at home, who are unable to make their way to a voting station on Wednesday.
A special vote allows a registered voter, who can’t vote at their voting station on election day, to apply to vote on a predetermined day before election day.
• Meanwhile Dlabathi officially handed over a brand new home to Gogo Evelinah Mahamba in Tsakane on Saturday.
The 80-year-old Mahamba says she is grateful to the ANC led government for building her such a beautiful home.
Dlabathi says they have launched three mega projects that will reinforce their intentions of building 100 000 units by the year 2021.
“Our top priority is to give houses to the people who are on the 1996 lists,” asserts Dlabathi.
