By-Elections…Who to Vote For (Video)

South Africa's by-elections on 11 November 2020 are a chance for South Africans to make a change at the ground level. These are the elections that decide who will be in the power of 107 seats in 95 wards across the country, they are the people who will lead at a council level. Leadership is ageing and failing. We have 35+ year olds representing the youth, corruption running wild, and a government that appears to not care about its people. Is this why this group of young professionals isn't voting and feeling drawn to more radical groups like the EFF? 

This is the second in a two-part Street Talk series on the Super Wednesday by-elections. See part 1 here:
