LETTER: Do not deprive yourself of the right to vote

2016-03-17 06:00

Just the idea of boycotting or abstaining from voting in elections is not the solution to the problems facing our country.

Voting is the basic right of all South Africans to elect the government or representatives of their choice.

It’s unfortunate that when people are not happy with service delivery they choose not to register and they don’t vote.

When people are unhappy with the current leaders in their respective wards, they should vote for other people.
