Peter Bruce Editor-at-large & columnist

This column will be no surprise, but it comes with a warning: do not try this at home. People will never let you forget it.  But I said months ago I’d be open about who I plan to vote for in the May 8 general elections so I will. I’ll vote ANC nationally and, living as I do in Gauteng, provincially. If I were in Western Cape, I’d vote DA there. Its premier candidate in that province, Alan Winde, is going to be outstanding. In Gauteng the DA colludes with the EFF. Voting ANC is the only way I can think of to stand with some brave people I admire at the heart of the government who have consistently shown courage and rectitude in the face of unimaginable pressure and the disgraceful thuggery in the governing party. In Cyril Ramaphosa I believe firmly that we have a chance, however slight, of beginning to set SA right after the criminal administration of former president Jacob Zuma.
