The Thembisan went to Thato Ke Maatla Engineering School of Specialisation to ask the young voters why they voted.

This is what they had to say:

Maria Thenjwayo: I want to see change in the education system. NSFAS is failing our children. They have debts that are hindering their future as NSFAS is failing to pay for their fees. I want my vote to change the lives of our children so that they have a prosperous future.
Koketso Makwana: I want to see change in the country and new opportunities for the people of this country.
Kgabo Mohlamme: I vote for change in the province. We need to see a change in work opportunities, especially for the youth. I believe my vote will help bring change to this country.
Frank Moloto: I am voting to ensure that the unemployment rate of this province improves for the youth. We need a government that will put the youth first and also fight the rise of unemployment in our province.
Sana Molefe: I have been applying for an RDP house for more than 17 years. To this day, my name is stuck in the government database for approval. I wish to see my vote change my situation, as my children are all grown up and we are also frequently harassed in informal settlements.
