It’s 2021 elections day and the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) sent a quick early message to South Africans on Monday morning, 1 November.
2021 LOCAL ELECTIONS: EFF PROMISES
“This is your day South Africa, ” the party said.
The red berets have assured South Africans it will deliver on their needs. The promise message laid down the lack of services many local citizens have been crying for under the leadership of the African National Congress (ANC).
Vote to restore your dignityVote for your inside flushing toiletVote for your piped waterVote for your electricityVote for your 24-hour clinicVote for your community safety,” the EFF 2021 elections message said.
The party’s statement concluded with the words: “Vote for you!”
ANC LOYALISTS THREATEN THE RULING PARTY
Meanwhile, in the Eastern Cape’s Makanda, local residents said they are fed up with the ANC’s empty promises.
According to the residents, they have committed to years of voting for the ANC but the trust has never resulted in service delivery.
They say they will not vote for the ruling party if their needs for basic service delivery are not met. One resident said he has voted for the party since 1994 but has largely been fed nothing but empty promises.
“I have voted for Nelson Mandela since 1994. I have always voted but never ever got anything from the government,” the community member said.
