EDITORIAL | South Africa’s problems centred around the ruling party, African National Congress (ANC). The change of leadership from regional to national has proved their failure to the highest level.
Top of concerns is South Africa is corruption within the government. ANC’s factionalism continues to destroy the country, they keep on promising, but they don’t deliver. There ought to be a decisive decision taken by voters in 2024, if really people want to see transformed SA.
However, there is some sense SAns aren’t getting, issues are not caused by individuals, but it’s a systematic collective mission to enrich individuals without delivering services to the voters.
ANC leadership lacks political will, which is why they can’t deliver any of the promises they make. If corruption is a systematic cause, why is the current administration not scrapping the tenderprenuership. There is an urgent need to capacitate the state to destroy tendership.
There are key factors voters keeps on ignoring time to time. Change of leadership in the ruling party is not the solution to SA’s problems. They lack political will all together, maybe it’s time voters test a new party, to see if there will not be transformation.
Under the ANC high unemployment rate, cost of living, standard of education and standard of health becomes more dysfunctional. The frustrated youth must take an action which is in their powers according to Constitution, to vote ANC out with any party of their choices.
If young people do not take step, no situation will ever change, it’s a reality we live with. There are a couple of ministries led by people who do not understand what it is to be young and poor. The ministry of small business, education department, trade, and industry and, arts and culture, they are not serving the interest of young people at all.
Come 2024, surely young people will go out in numbers to exercise their constitutional right to vote and for the party of their choice which they believe will serve their interest.
