Thuli Madon­sela would be a per­fect pres­i­dent. Not only is she the Public Pro­tec­tor, she walks the talk, which many lead­ers fail to do in fear of the un­known.

Thuli is bold and dis­ci­plined enough to sus­tain a hu­man rights cul­ture of un­earthing truth, jus­tice and trust in our lead­ers.

We need a par­a­digm shift to­wards fem­i­nist lead­ers. If women are given a chance to lead, con­struc­tive change and the dawn of a peace­ful and de­vel­op­ing coun­try will come.

We will be proud as women to have brought a legacy we pray will be kept for our gen­er­a­tion to cher­ish.

I think Thuli Madon­sela will be the best as she al­ways stands by the truth, noth­ing threat­ens her in­tegrity and we re­ally do need some­one like her.

Thuli Madon­sela hates cor­rup­tion. She is very strong, and not afraid to raise her views and be­liefs. She can bring the change that South Africa needs.

Right now, Thuli Madon­sela seems like the only politi­cian we can trust.

Ad­vo­cate Thuli Madon­sela would un­doubt­edly be a great fe­male pres­i­dent.

Thuli Madon­sela makes a great fe­male pres­i­dent. She adores ev­ery citizen as an equal and has the spirit of ubuntu.

My choice would be Thuli Madon­sela be­cause she is hon­est, un­afraid and has in­tegrity.

Thuli can run for the pres­i­dency. She don’t take shit and doesn’t buy any­body.

I vote for Thuli Madon­sela. South Africa will be a bet­ter place and no one will suf­fer. We will be liv­ing in the land of plenty!

I think Ad­vo­cate Thuli Madon­sela will make a great pres­i­dent. She knows the law.

Thuli Madon­sela would make a great pres­i­dent. She is in a league of her own and ruth­lessly ef­fi­cient.

I think Lindiwe Sisulu should be the next madam pres­i­dent. She is firm and a woman of in­tegrity. As the min­is­ter of de­fence, she ex­e­cuted her tasks out­stand­ingly well. She has proven her­self wor­thy.

I say Win­nie Man­dela. This women has been through hard­ship and a hellish life fight­ing for us.

Peo­ple nowa­days do good where they will ben­e­fit. But umama Win­nie is unique. Her life and chil­dren were in dan­ger, and she never slept peace­fully, yet kept on fight­ing.

I value and hon­our umama Win­nie.

Naledi Pan­dor for pres­i­dent. She is a very pow­er­ful, hon­est and fair per­son. Thank God for women like her.

We must be care­ful when we talk about the is­sue of a fe­male pres­i­dent.

The ques­tion is whether there is a woman who is ap­peal­ing to South Africans, not who is emo­tion­ally charged to tell us we must be ready for a fe­male pres­i­dent whether we like it or not.

It will be stupid of us to push a woman to the Union Build­ings and later be forced to re­call her sim­ply be­cause peo­ple do not like her. Re­call­ing a pres­i­dent is costly for the coun­try.

A good brain is also not enough. A good brain needs to be backed by pop­u­lar sup­port.
