The minister of transport Fikile Mbalula seems to be having sleepless nights when he thinks about the metros in Gauteng province especially in Tshwane. We know that almost all the parties that are contesting for the municipalities in Gauteng province are actually looking for the metros. We even heard from Tito Mboweni who said that the ANC should win all the metros.
According to filike Mbalula, there is Boko Haram that has infiltrated the ANC branches in Tshwane. He says that they are trying to ensure that the ANC does not win this elections. This is not the notorious African terrorists but the infamous Pretoria gang. They are all over and the minister of transport Fikile Mbalula is more scared of them than he is with other political parties.
They are so powerful to the point were they even get away with anything. It is believed that they bribe their way out of the courts. If this is indeed the case, then our judiciary is really in a comprising state.
As the election date draws near, the president has now declared the 1 November as a public holiday.
It seems like political parties had to work very hard to ensure that they get their message across. The competition is very tight this time around. There is no clear indication which party will be taking this one. Almost every party stand a chance. The ANC this time have to work hard to ensure that they retain some of the municipalities that they are in control of and at the same time ensuring that they get all the metros.
The ANC is really not in good standing this time around. We have also seen that the community of Soweto is planing on shutting down the voting stations on the 1 November. They are saying that no one will vote until they have electricity. Ever since the president promised them that the issue of electricity will be solved within a week and even today nothing has happened. He went to Soweto on voter registration weekend.
