"I think people who take the awarded status of importance with
grace first have to accept that they are important. You have to be
very conceited to think that of yourself. If I should accept that I
am in some way important, I should also accept that there are
others who aren't. How do I live with myself with that sort of
rubbish in my head? Do you know what I wish for? "What?" "To be
good and unimportant." There was silence. "So I have made my
decision. I am going home. By the end of today I will be free and
unimportant." In 12 hours, your life could change forever, as Zizi
discovers. On the night preceding his Student Representative
Council presidential manifesto, and not for the first time, Zizi
physically abuses his cheating girlfriend, Pamodi. But Pamodi
flees. During a night that turns out to be the longest in Zizi's
memory, instead of writing the manifesto speech, the reader follows
the anxiety-stricken politician in his race against time and cover
of the night, as he searches the campus for his missing girlfriend.
While Zizi is haunted by the fear that Pamodi might expose him for
what he really is, forever damaging his pristine image as the
favourite presidential candidate, Pamodi evades detection, and is
nowhere to be found. In the morning, the speech he delivers is not
anything anyone could have expected from an SRC star: it is a
litany of confessions for his questionable integrity and violence.
As Zizi's words fade, and a sense of shock lingers in the air, he
is faced with the reality of his actions; as they realise that they
may vote a highly flawed man into office, how will these students
vote? What will it mean, either way?
