THE Officials from the Independent Electoral Commission, in partnership with the Greytown SAPS, and Community Safety and Liaison held an awareness campaign at the Greytown Sassa offices ahead of the national elections that will be held on May 8.

The aim of the campaign was to warn residents and political parties not to disturb other political parties when canvassing for elections.

Speakers at a meeting advised residents to be vigilant as the day of the elections is approaching.

Warrant Officer Mnyandu said the purpose of the meeting was to outline the key aspects of having free and fair elections.

“Greytown SAPS will visit the township to educate the residents about fair and free elections. We heard that there are people in the community who disturb other political parties when they canvass in the location,” Mnyandu said.
