Most South Africans feel that their councillors do not care about them, and more respondents thought their councillors are corrupt and dishonest than those who believed their councillors are ethical and honest, according to a survey conducted for News24.

It appeared that black respondents were generally more dissatisfied with their councillors than respondents of other races.

DA voters were also generally happier with their councillors, the data showed, while EFF voters were especially dissatisfied with their councillors.
