Some voters took to twitter to share a video revealing that black voters in Wellington Capetown are not allowed to be on the same queue as whites in polling station.
Black citizens are using this medium to create awareness that racism still exists in the country. The whites are seen queening on the right side of the station while the whites queue on the left side. This way, the voting is done in turns. See video below.
