2024 Elections

The responses were many and based on various reasons. Check them out below:

Phindile Mlaba responded:

“Definitely not ANC.”

Abby Jefferson commented:

“I can already see the people's party going house to house registering the poor and promising them food parcels prior to those elections.”

Oupa Thela reacted:

“Opposition is very weak. ANC WILL TAKE THIS.”

Caswell Galileo wrote:

“The outdated ANC won't see the votes to rule the country again. ActionSA is the party that most people black and white are moving to currently. DA has many people running away from it. As for EFF they have lost the votes Already with their policies on foreign nationals. A definite coalition come 2024.”

Xolile Thamae replied:

“Not sure, but I doubt ANC will reach 50%. I smell coalition government.”

Ranther Clement Mokwetli commented:

“The ANC will still win the election because they rely on elderly people because elderly people are a formidable force in any elections. I think there must be a law that legislates all eligible citizens to participate in the elections. Failure to do so is punishable by the state with a fine or even a prison sentence. There are so many parasites who enjoy the service of the government that they don't vote for.”
