Retired Archbishop Desmond Tutu, one of the champions of South Africa's struggle for democracy, said on Wednesday he will not vote for the ruling African National Congress (ANC) party in an election on May 7. "I won't vote for them (ANC). I say that with a heavy heart," Tutu told reporters in Cape Town, after praising former liberators within the ANC, including the late Nelson Mandela, South Africa's first black president. "Remember, it will decide what quality of life you will have for the next five years." South Africa will celebrate 20 years since the end of apartheid on Sunday but Tutu said the ANC under President Jacob Zuma had "failed to fill the shoes" of Mandela and his colleagues who fought for the end of white-minority rule.
