Vote to make our voices heard

Whenever there is dissatisfaction people will grumble - but this is not a true reflection of their needs and feelings.

Some grumble for nothing, not because they have nothing. Some do so because the habit has grown into a hobby.

This has created misunderstanding and resulted in communication breakdown.

After the ANC's Limpopo conference in late 2007 the calmness we used to enjoy came to a sudden halt.

One fails to understand whether people are uncomfortable with Jacob Zuma as leader of the ruling party or whether there are other underlying factors that the public is not privileged enough to know about. The sudden and unforeseen birth of Cope shows internal fights were left unresolved.

Still, after the birth of this ANC alternative for the black community there is still noise in the neighbourhood. If people are still not happy where they are serving they should find another home where they can be more effective.

There is no justification for people not voting and being confused as to whom to vote for. There is much on the table to choose from.

People should grab this opportunity as our forefathers could not because of restrictive policies of the past.

Let us vote for our leaders and make sure our voices are heard by those in power.

Elijah Mantshi, Tembisa
