Briefly.co.za asked our readers what the country is lacking and the feedback seemed to point in one direction.
With the elections now over, South Africans are bracing themselves for changes in the months to come.
In light of this, Briefly.co.za ran an online poll via Facebook asking our readers what the country is lacking.
Although the question was open to broad interpretation, the majority of social media users seemed to be on the same page.
There was a very strong political feel to the comments, which indicates a lack of confidence in the political parties and their leaders.
Johnny Joannou kept it short and sweet as he said, “HONEST LEADERSHIP.”
Kibby Lucy Maine said, “Good management of funds and positions given to qualified individuals.”
Maureen Mc Nabb added, “It's lacking good and honesty governance. There is too many corrupted officials.”
Colette Brownell commented, “Leaders whose integrity exceeds their greed and need to equate power with material goods and riches for themselves.”
Stephen Codd added: “We lack a government with integrity, honesty and leadership skills.”
There were a few exceptions, but for the most part, the vast majority of comments called for a huge improvement in political leadership.
Suzette Wilken said, “God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit.”
Jarryd Lee Thomas said, “A proper non corrupt government that has equal rights for all races in the country!”
