Bonang Matheba has almost done it all, the only thing remaining is becoming president of the country. But it seems that goal is something that's on the media mogul's bucket list. After seeing the recent unemployment stats, Bonang took to social media to tell fans to vote for her instead.
In a light-hearted post, Bonang tweeted: "Cela ni vote-ele mina ke!" ("Please vote me for me then!")
Although the post may have been in jest, recent rules have allowed for the entry of an independent candidate in the election race. Some social media users had previously said that they would vote for Bonang if she would run for president.
South Africans have had mixed reactions to the ruling and one particularly interesting reaction came from Bonang Matheba. The media mogul said that she would consider standing for the presidency when a tweep suggested that she should.
The Constitutional Court declared the Electoral Act unconstitutional on Thursday morning. Justice Mbuyiseli Madlanga handed down the judgment after the New Nation Movement sought to allow for an independent candidate to run for elections.
