#SAElections2019 dominates Twitter as Mzansi made its mark
South Africa's general elections have come and gone, but they remain dominant on social media, as South Africans continue to weigh in on their experiences at voting stations, as well as their expectations of the party which will emerge victorious.
#SAelections2019 was the key hashtag used by politicians and the public.
While the final results will be released on Saturday, Twitter theorists and hopefuls are expressing their opinions on which party they think will win.
Politicians also engaged, urging voters to give their parties a chance.
Most tweeps' votes were no secret. Some made it clear before the elections who they would vote for, while others disclosed their choices after putting pen to paper at the polls. Others went as far as posting pictures of themselves in party regalia.
Many South Africans woke up bright and early on May 8 2019 to cast their vote at their designated stations. We kept up with the thumb pictures on social media and decided to share some.

We are not going to wait for 5 years for you to mess up with our country. We are going to stand up as civil society and call for action to remove you if your party will not act. Our Silence has caused damage enough #SAElectionsDay2019 #SAelections2019
