Durban – Four car guards living in Port Shepstone believe government should focus on infrastructural development and safety.

A smiling but shy Sontsele Zolisa, 40, said he would vote for the ANC, but said the party needed to oust President Jacob Zuma.

“I want a new leader in the ANC. The party is not delivering. There is a lot of corruption. In my area we need tarred roads, water and electricity that do not go off all the time.”

The party had to go back to basics.

“They must just remember the people who fought for us. They must also remember who we are as voters. We want them in. But they must help us.”

A call for peace

Letitia Bernhard, 54, a car guard working at the Oribi Plaza, said peace was the most important factor in South Africa. All she wanted from political parties was for them to end crime.

“Here we have many people who work together but vote differently. I am voting for the DA, but that is because they are keeping their promises.”

While South Africa had many issues, if crime was reduced, everything else would fall into place.

Qondile Bangani, a jovial 41-year-old from Baboyi township, said while there were infrastructural challenges in his area, he was happy in his RDP home.

“Obviously I am voting for the ANC, I like my ANC. I am doing car guarding for 18 years and am waiting for my job. I know it is coming soon.”

Kosi Cele, in his 30s, also from Baboyi township said the ANC made him happy.

“They give us toilets, they give us homes. They do a lot for the people. It is right to vote for them.”
