- Mpho, a 22-year-old SA man shared a heartfelt message about how life in post-apartheid South Africa disappointed him
- And how he was bullied to vote for a 'so-called black party', who did nothing for his family
- His message touched the hearts of many who heard it, as he opens up about living life in a shack
Calling into the Eusebius McKaizer show, Mpho shared his view about the political state of the country and how it effected all citizens.
"The only thing I knew growing up was a shack. Me and my parents never lived in a house.", said the 22-year-old who added he was born in 1995, after apartheid ended.
Playing rugby throughout his school career, Mpho received scholarships, which luckily helped him after matric.
He added his parent applied for RDP housing for as long as he could remembered, adding they even started paying bribes of a R1600 a year so that their names could be pushed up. But, the ANC just never delivered.
Mpho said black people said he was betraying the struggle of his people by voting for a so-called black party, but he added it was the same 'white party' that eventually build his father a RDP home.
"Last year was the first time I've seen my dad cry because he had an RDP house from the so-called white party", Mpho said, adding "how could they say I am betraying blacks' struggle when the so-called black party could not do anything for my parents.
Mpho became audibly emotional as he talked about his parents. He said he remembered the times when it rained and they had to put their belongings and their beds on top of bricks otherwise it would get soaking wet.
Now, his father would phone him excited when it rained, because he can for once in his life enjoy the rain.
Mpho said the students at his university would often criticise him for choosing to vote for the 'white party', but he said he supports the party that worked for him.
