Johannesburg - DA leader Mmusi Maimane was all smiles and jokes as he made his way to cast his vote in his Dobsonville, Soweto, neighbourhood.
"Don't show people my ID," Mmusi said to raucous laughter as he made his way to the Electoral Commission officers.
Solly Msimanga, the DA Gauteng premier candidate, who accompanied Maimane to the voting station, said he would not be voting in Dobsonville but in Pretoria.
"I'm here to make sure that he (Maimane) votes for me," Msimanga joked. "He'll also be there to make sure that I vote for him."
Maimane greeted officials who assisted him before proceeding to the voting booth, where he took long, eliciting murmurs of: "Why is he taking so long? Isn't he voting for himself?"
