They only do this during election? See what ANC high profile politicians spotted doing

Municipality local elections are scheduled for the near future, and politicians have begun working behind the scenes to secure votes.Many politicians can be seen in various towns providing services to the underprivileged, just as they do all the time, when elections are approaching. People have become accustomed to the fact that they only see high-profile politicians when elections are close at hand.

When elections are approaching, the vast majority of politicians make promises to voters about service delivery that they do not follow through on once they have won the election. Some politicians only provide service during election season as a means of obtaining votes from members of the public who are eligible to vote for them.

Comrade Paul Mashatile, the treasurer general of the African National Congress, has been spotted visiting the impoverished at a township in Amelia, Free state . In the photo, Mr. Treasurer-General can be seen having a conversation with a man who lives in a hut. According to the photo, it appears that Paul was discussing his situation, and it is suspected that, as a comrade, he could be offering to assist him by promising to build him a house.

At the beginning of this week, the president of the Republic of South Africa, Cyril Ramaphosa, as well as his cabinet ministers, have been seen traveling throughout the country, campaigning in communities and delivering government services.

People are fed up with politicians that only care about them when an election is near, and they are right. The fact that Mr. Treasurer-General can be seen now with the poor man did not go down well with the majority of people. People have criticized him for only visiting the impoverished when he wants them to vote for him, and they are right. Comrades pretend to have the best interests of the community at heart when they really simply want people to vote for them. Mzansi is tired of being fooled by politicians who are only visible in During elections.
