Elections 2019: Hope for a better South Africa

South Africans make their choice between a record number of 48 political parties on the 2019 general election ballot

Published

It is said that more than 26 million South Africans out of an eligible voting population of almost 35 million registered to vote, voting stations countrywide have opened their doors and will remain open until 9pm as South Africans cast their vote for the sixth time since the end of apartheid.

It is important that South Africans consider the significance of exercising their right to choose a government.

After exercising that right it is important to take responsibility for the electoral outcomes, whatever they are, and ensure the elected parties and leaders honour their promises and do right by all South African citizens. It is important that leaders honour their manifestos. Abdication of democratic responsibility would be naive.

This week we celebrate the legacy of Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela, and with that we also recognise the contributions made by citizens in a bid to bring about change.

The Rhodes University Community Engagement Division (RUCE) together with the community of Makana, have taken the initiative to bring change within the community of Manaka through, Vuka! Makana initiative in honour of Nelson Mandela’s birthday this week.

This initiative was set to partner with communities, encouraging citizens to assist with creating better living standards within their communities.

It seeks to tackle prolonging issues which have been affecting both the standards and means of living. These issues are commonly related to,”littering streets, day zero looming, pothole, or dilapidated buildings”.

“We must use time wisely and forever realise that the time is always ripe to do right.” – Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela

With Mandela Day coming up, even though we are aware that everyday should be a Mandela day since giving back has no time nor day, this year is no different. Whether it is giving back to somebody else or having your own “Mandela Day goals”, one thing that remains important is to start with what you are passionate about. There is no action greater then the other whenever the goal is to make a difference.

This Mandela day we say let’s move forward in good spirit and contribute towards doing good and making a difference.
