The election promises: are they true or a manipulation?

12 May 2014, 13:46

The election results have proven that the scourges that affect the poor should not be taken lightly, hence we saw the rise in the number of followers for the young and new Parties like the EFF; UDM and the NFP. So it seems the seeds of disillusionment from the “former” Liberation Party have permeated to the formation by the offspring’s creating new Parties such as EFF; NFF, and has also inadvertently cemented the position of the Opposition Party the DA in the townships, especially in Gauteng and the Western Cape.

Such formidable opponents have used this window of opportunity to expand the number of their constituency and it has subsequently aided in these Political Parties moving up the ladder by exploring the economic vulnerability of the marginalized masses in the Townships and Rural Areas and the land acquisition matter to their advantage in these last elections. You may want to call it “psychological manipulation”, tactics aimed at taming the mind of the despondent citizens of uMzantsi in order to succumb to the will of the “executor”.

This is a sign for the current National Ruling Party to take notice of these shortfalls, to improve the quality of Service Delivery as promised in their election campaigns. It is time that priority should be given to the needs of the masses that are deprived of their fundamental Constitutional Rights, who live in abject poverty.

The ANC should at this point onwards follow a decisive strategy to address the issues affecting the poor and destitute citizens who are crying out loud for improvement to Service Delivery and who have a hope that the government would be engage in mechanisms that will create a platform that provides the Opportunity to get and create new Jobs for the Youth. It is imperative that all government departments should be involved in matters that promote Job Creation and Entrepreneurship within the Youth bodies, in coalition with the Private Sector. At this point as we celebrate the victory of the ruling National Party, it should be noted that corruption and circumstances that have led to poor service delivery are the things of the past, and a new turn around is not a choice, but a will TO Service the People of Mzantsi (iSizwe Sethu).
