  • In many Wards, they will vote in the existing party again, but within 2 months will, once again, be out protesting about service delivery etc.

  • We have an ANC problem, not just a Zuma or Vusi problem. We are stuck in the do-loop of economic destruction, thanks to a corrupt and un-transformable ANC and a stupefying ignorant electorate who cannot see beyond the ANC false patronage.

    • This is not meant as an attack but I have frequently read that part of the issue is ignorance among the electorate.

      How can that issue be addressed? I am asking this in all honesty. Do we need better grassroots efforts so that they can be better informed? Or is there another way?

      I get it – the ANC is benefiting from the current arrangement. But these are not laws of nature, people’s behavior can be changed with time and patience.
