Johannesburg - Casting his vote in Alexandra township, Siphesihle Koyina hopes his vote will result in an increased minimum wage.
Koyina, who voted at Thusong Youth Centre, told Independent Media he voted for a party that he believed would fight for the increase of the minimum wage to R5000.
The minimum wage was introduced this year in the country. The government set it at R3 500.
Some unions were against setting the minimum wage at R3 500, saying it was too meagre.
Koyina shared the sentiment of those against R3 500 as a minimum wage. Without revealing the party he voted, he said his vote was a reflection of his position against "peanut" pays.
