My daughter said she is not voting, I want to spoil my ballot paper says caller
Despite party political campaigning, and only weeks to go before elections, callers express indecision about who to vote for on 8 May.
Some callers remain hardline ANC supporters.
We have to vote for the ANC, I don't think there any other option. Cyril does need this mandate.Tshepo, Caller
Others seem ambivalent about voting at all.

Caller Kiernan says while he is coloured he does not want that to influence his vote.
I don't want to vote for people who are corrupt. I don't want to vote for a specifically coloured party.Kiernan, Caller
@Eusebius your question about alternatives to western democracy is interesting, it deserves a dedicated show.I think perhaps a model that speaks to African indigenous systems especially in removing term limits.Western democracies can be problematic in term limits. #702openline— Miss K 🇿🇦📻🚜🏌️♀️🎤🥬🐏🐝🎓🏃♀️👩🏽🌾 (@porklady) April 10, 2019
#702openline - @Eusebius- If it was not for opposition parties like EFF & DA, the scandal of Nkandla and state capture would have been buried through paliamentary portfolio committees' reports. That's a reason for me to vote the opposition to hold those in power accountable.— Siya Kheka (@Siyakheka3) April 10, 2019
@Eusebius it is unfortunate that we live in a country we voting is more about loyalty than who is making sense...Much as there are people voting for party X out of loyalty,there people doing the same for party Z... #702openline— Soli wo SUNGULA. (@MkhacaniSnr) April 10, 2019
