President Cyril Ramaphosa left Delft residents in the Western Cape in stitches during his campaign trail on Friday after implying that couples were not allowed to have sex on voting day.
In a video posted by eNCA, Ramaphosa told residents to prioritise voting on May 8 and leave other things for other days.
He said: “On the 8th of May, please know that you have an appointment with the president. You have an appointment with the president. So please wake up on the 8th of May, if you’ll be sleeping with someone, wake that person up and say to the person ‘wake up my love we have an appointment with the president. When you have an appointment with the president, you are not supposed to be doing other things. Whatever you are used to doing when you wake up, know that you have an appointment with the president. When you wake up to talk and gossip or you do other things, don’t do it.”
He further told the singles to also wake up and wake their neighbours to go and vote for the ANC.
“If you sleep alone, like that man there, they say he sleeps alone… if you do happen to sleep alone, wake up and then wake up others and tell them that you have to go vote,” he said.
