South Africa will make their mark on 8 May to choose their next president and regional leaders, and our favourite celebrities will be making their way to voting stations too.
We chatted to media personality, Maps Maponyane, about why he thinks it's important for Mzansi to us the their voice and vote.
Here’s what he said:
What comes to mind when you think of the elections?
My earliest memory of the vote is actually the most pivotal one, on April 27, 1994. I don’t remember too much detail, but will never forget the euphoria at the polls in Soweto and my mom’s efforts to try to make me understand why it was so important to wait in line for a long time. It was a cold morning and a very hot day.
