DA leader Mmusi Maimane claims he vote for former president Nelson Mandela, but he only was born in 1980 - making him too young to vote when Mandela ran for president.
If you do the math, he would have been 14 at the time. So how could he have voted?This is the question many social media users are asking.

Pastor Mmusi Maimane of the DA claims he voted for Mandela in 1994. He was only born in 1980 thus making ineligible to vote at the age of 13— Panyaza Lesufi (@Lesufi) August 1, 2016
"MmusiMaimane was 14 years old in 1994, he couldn't vote". Did i hear correctly? Is this sabc news? No really, is that what was said?— hertzogie. (@MelaninMonreaux) August 1, 2016
@MmusiMaimane I guess you were the youngest voter in 1994. Since you weren't eligible to vote then.You are a fraud like the rest of @Our_DA— Wesley Fester (@FesterWesley) August 1, 2016
Heban? Were you not 14 in 1994? How and when did you vote for Madiba? @MmusiMaimane https://t.co/iEdzxFDDBp— Marwale J Phaahla (@Kgoshi_Moloto) August 1, 2016
Tomorrow, we face Elections. Some have dubbed it the most exciting election since 1994. Like in '94, we will vote for change.— Mmusi Maimane (@MmusiMaimane) May 6, 2014
Our vote in 1994, was for a democratic state not a one party state. Change & political freedom must be a function of our democracy.— Mmusi Maimane (@MmusiMaimane) October 15, 2013
