Politics in Africa are disgraceful in every single country on the continent. Recently, a politician in Zimbabwe delivered small plastic buckets to voters in advance of a by-election, which caused many people to talk about the incident.
This politician is affiliated with Zimbabwe's ruling Zanu-PF party, which distributed free buckets to its followers in advance of a by-election in the town of Gokwe North, which is located in the Midlands area of Zimbabwe.
What this politician did is a common occurrence in Africa, where many politicians no longer value being servants of the people and are instead focused with padding their own wallets with the money they steal from the people they are supposed to serve.
They don't give much thought to the food their followers consume or the living conditions where they are, which is why they always turn to bribing them when it comes time to win votes.
The only thing that was given to the voters was a bucket, which, if we're being honest, is the very last thing they need given that the majority of them are having trouble putting food on the table.
Voters are also to blame because they allow themselves to be used repeatedly by politicians who are not interested with improving their lives, and they continue to vote for those people.
