Mazibuko causes selfie stir

By Sapa | May 07, 2014 | COMMENTS [ 9 ]

DA parliamentary leader Lindiwe Mazibuko caused a photo frenzy when she joined the long queue of voters at Durban North Primary School on Wednesday morning.

Mazibuko caused a buzz among waiting voters when she declined an invitation by the polling station's presiding officer to jump the queue.

She was swarmed by people eager to take photographs of themselves alongside her.

Mazibuko, accompanied by her mother June and DA provincial leader Sizwe Mchunu, declined the invitation to jump ahead.

"No thank you. I always join the queue," she said.

Mazibuko said she used to live in nearby Glen Anil and had always voted locally.

She said she was thrilled at the big turnout as it proved people were voting in numbers instead of staying at home.

The DA was confident of increasing its numbers nationally and provincially.

And that nicely sums up the difference between DA and some parties.

Has Lindiwe lost weight?? Good for her (losing weight and not jumping the queue). If only we had leaders like her in SA. But, I can see Lindiwe becoming president in my lifetime. She has that aura, charisma, dedication and authority. Good luck, Ms Mazibuko ( I hope you take Gauteng, as well)

Lindiwe is actually the one on the right wearing black, look closely. The one who is smaller is her mom.

I like the humility of not wanting to jump the queu, I bet many of the big names never queued, they came, voted, and left.
