Soshanguve residents vote for tarred roads, jobs

2016-08-03 12:37

retoria – Tarred roads were the number one priority for many who voted in Soshanguve on Wednesday morning.

"I want to see tarred roads in my area, as well as job opportunities for the youth. I hope my vote will contribute to change," said a woman who declined to be named.

She was part of the queue that snaked towards the voting station at the Bokamoso Primary School in Extension 4.

The cold weather did not deter the many optimistic voters who were determined to make their mark.

Elizabeth Ngobeni said she had voted to ensure that the development in her area continued.

"I decided to vote for changes. Right now we have RDPs, water and electricity. We want for them to continue and see what else will improve in the next five years," she said.

Rhinos Makhubela said he was happy with some of the services being delivered, but felt more could be done to improve the roads.

He said it was important to vote to ensure his party got enough votes to win the ward and municipality to effect change.

"I feel good voting, because I know when I do that, services will come to us. Watching others vote does not give the party you support enough votes. Coming here will help the party win.

"I just want to see better roads and security. Apart from that, I'm happy with the services I have," he said.
