Johannesburg - President Jacob Zuma has declared August 3 a public holiday, the presidency said on Friday. 

This would enable all those eligible to do so to cast their votes in the local government elections that day, presidency spokesperson Bongani Ngqulunga said.

“Voting is a fundamental right enshrined in our Constitution. It is important that citizens are granted an opportunity to exercise this right freely. This is particularly so when they elect this sphere of government that is closest to them”, he said in a statement.

This year marks 16 years of democratic local government in South Africa.
