I find Sowetan's poll for president Thabo Mbeki's successor to be useless.
The reason is that out of the five candidates listed, ANC's deputy president Jacob Zuma is not there.
This bothers me because last time you asked your readers to vote whether or not Zuma must be the next president. Zuma won that poll and that means he is entitled to be listed as a candidate for the presidency.
This brings me to a conclusion that your voting initiative is nothing but another way of trying to make money through SMSes and calls.
