Twitter user @_just_pat has some sound advice for the youth of Mzansi struggling with unemployment. The local man says it's about time South Africa's youth hold our government accountable come election season. In his direct post, he writes:
"Unemployed youth, here's a solution to our problem. if any of them comes with their door to door campaigns. give them your CV and If you don't get a job before elections they're not getting a vote. We're tire of empty promises.
Who's with me?"
Mzansi social media users were definitely contested on the issue, with many pondering whether their votes would make any tangible change in the country and even more users were concerned politicians don't really care. Read some of their comments below:
"Don't stop voting, change the vote."
"Politicians and their politics are somewhere somehow one and the same they can kiss my vote here"
"I'm with you!"
"Good idea I really like it and I think it would work,even noma bese next door we should approach sibanikeze our CVS."
"That's a very good plan"
"They will hire you after few days they apply section 139b on you"
"How much do one of these Audi's cost to buy and brand?"
"I'm not familiar with this democracy thing since I'm in eSwatini but this solution isn't a solution because the elderly people will continue to vote for their favourite party and you will still complain... you got to use your vote for change!"
