As the reader, I can tell that your voice has been heard clearly. There were more than 10,000 votes submitted for Ace Magashule as your Mampara of the Year in 2021. He was 14 percentage points ahead of his closest competitor when he won the coveted championship. For the former leader of the Free State, this year has been a nightmare.

Readers voted suspended ANC secretary-general and former Free State premier Ace Magashule the Mampara of the Year.

It all started with a slew of accusations from the National Prosecuting Authority over a botched asbestos-eradication deal in his native province. An unusual move by NEC members, the ANC’s national executive council (NEC) expelled him from the party while he faced criminal accusations. When Gwede Mantashe brutally kicked him out of the Zoom call at the first NEC meeting after he was suspended, who can forget it?

Magashule won 27% of the votes in an online poll that asked you to choose your Mampara of the Year from a selection of 10 contestants. When he came to the defense of his idol Jacob Zuma, he said that the constitution didn’t matter. By ignoring a Constitutional Court order to appear before the Zondo panel, Zuma has been accused of disregarding the law. It is clear that Magashule and Zuma are meant to be together.


After a late charge on Wednesday night, the Independent Media supremo snatched second position. When it comes to this narcissist, there is nothing new to say. Despite the fact that Ayo Technology Solutions is a substandard ICT company, the guy refuses to return billions of dollars from the Public Investment Corporation that he put in the company illegally.

It seemed as though Survé couldn’t go much lower, yet he surprised us all. As soon as the story appeared in one of his publications, he sprang to the defense of the lady, despite the fact that the hospitals in question and an entire government were unable to discover any proof that she had given birth to 10 children. With 13.2 percent of the vote, he goes home.


In third position is the transportation minister, who refers to himself as “Mr. Fix,” despite the fact that our trains are inoperable. A large number of people follow him on Twitter, where he spends much of his time blowing smoke. He had to immediately remove a tweet that suggested that the Covid vaccination may not be as successful as he thought.

It’s time for him to get down to the business of mending our dysfunctional public transportation or for the president to relieve him of this crucial responsibility so that he may spend all of his spare time playing on social media.

Fourth, is John Steenhuisen

If the tone-deaf DA leader is to succeed in running a genuine political party, he has a lot of growing to do. He is reported to have surrounded himself with those who are too loyal to tell him the truth in parliament’s DA power corridors. Embarrassingly, his party’s poster campaign in Phoenix was based on a tragic event in which people were killed during the looting.

DA Leader John Steenhuisen.

12.4 percent of you think he deserved the title of Mampara of the Year because he couldn’t read the room.


The African Transformation Movement (ATM) is Jacob Zuma’s two-seat party, although his cheerleader spends all of his time worrying about the ANC. Because just one or two judges disagreed, he questioned the validity of Constitutional Court rulings that were against Zuma. Almost 10% of our users picked the worst spin doctor in the globe.

Because of his sexist comments in past rulings, many people doubted the departed chief justice when he was first chosen to the position. However, he proved people incorrect and was a part of critical decisions that safeguarded democracy throughout state takeovers.

Since then, his ultraconservative, reactionary character has returned. When he praised modern-day Israel, he almost got himself impeached for comparing it to the biblical vision of the country. He recently claimed to be able to cure HIV/AIDS via prayer. To put it mildly, this one’s time has come.
