It’s time politicians back up their words with action.


For months leading up to the 2024 general election, political parties’ catch phrases of how they will improve the lives of South Africans was thrust into our faces via posters on street poles, radio and print adverts or TV interviews.

Every party vowed to find the solution to our daily problems should we vote for them.
