While All The Political Parties Are Busy Campaigning, This Young Man Is Angry With Them

A South African youth went to Twitter to express his displeasure and disappointment with the way political parties are campaigning now, saying that they refuse to engage in a proper campaign, but are busy talking irrelevant things. He said none of the political parties are talking about the CBD's and refuse collections which is a colossal problem in many municipalities. This Young man is not happy, and he took the bold step to address it once and for all. While many political parties are busy organizing massive and mega campaigns while others are going about doing door to door campaigns, this young man insisted that the salient issues have been neglected by the campaigners. Recall that a South African youth also berated political parties saying that they are not campaigning, but they are merely attacking each other instead of campaigning.

Unfortunately, this young man observed the same thing, and he went to Twitter to voice out his frustration about the recent happenings. He wrote, “It’s rather disappointing that none of the political parties during this campaign season, campaigned about the refuse collection issue in Ethekwini municipality, no political parties campaigned about the issue of amaPhara in the CBD, how to make the CBD a business hub again. How to make the Durban beachfront a world-class tourist attraction, how to revitalise the CBD & beachfront… it’s sad, the political parties only focused on voters from townships and peri urban areas, forgetting that those voters need the CBD to function for a better life”. Recall also that a young man insisted that the campaign of the ANC is merely a renewal of their former failed promises while the campaigns of the EFF is characterized with making bogus promises of giving South Africans everything for free. He subsequently attacked the Democratic Alliance as a racist party and ActionSA as a xenophobic gathering.

Reacting to this information, another youth pointed out that it is indeed an important area that they have neglected. He said, “Also enforcing refuse collection contracts with CBD businesses. A lot of foreigner owned businesses simply leave their rubbish on the street, DSW has no choice but to clean it. Very true and these are serious issues in Durban. None have campaigned on the drug issues in townships, traffic management.”.
