Last year uBaba kaDuduzane deservedly walked away with the prestigious title of Mampara of the Year.

Former president Jacob Zuma is already a lifetime achiever when it comes to this award, so this year we decided to exclude him for the list. However, our readers are still spoiled for choice, with a number of Zuma's former henchmen making the list.

This year we've narrowed it down to these top 10 candidates (scroll to the bottom to vote):

Tom Moyane

The former Sars commissioner is fighting for his job despite overwhelming evidence that he destroyed the organisation. He made it to the Mampara list after it emerge that he instructed a Sars official to fake a sickness so not to give evidence against him.

Mdu Manana

Manana was fired by Zuma after he was once again accused of assaulting a woman.

Busisiwe Mkhwebane

No one has won the Mampara accolade more this year than the public protector. Remember when she threatened to lay criminal charges against Hogarth (LOL)?

Malusi Gigaba

No list would be complete without the former home affairs minister who showed off his Gigabyte this year.

Meokgo Matuba

The ANC women's league general-secretary made the list when she tried to intimidate our colleague by sending her a photo of a toy gun.

Johann Rupert

The billionaire made of fool of himself with the assistance of Given Mkhari when he insinuated that black people were bad with managing their finances. Needless to say social media was not impressed.

Adam Catzavelos

Catzavelos exposed himself as a racist with a now infamous video.

Vytjie Mentor

This year Mentor confirmed what we suspected - that she is no reliable witness.

Floyd Shivambu

The EFF deputy president assaulted a journalist and was exposed as having allegedly benefited from the VBS Mutual Bank looting.
