Know Your Party

As many of my fellow Mzansi countrymen/women journeyed to the polls today to cast their vote, I cant help but think just how many don't actually know what they voting for. I was astonished and a bit flabbergasted after taking a "Know Your Party" survey on the News24 web site to find out that my views was a damn not aligned with that of my supporting party. Do not get me wrong, it wasn't exactly life changing or altering my perception of life as the Sunday walk of shame and Swedish summer does. But it did get me thinking about my peoples back home. How many of us actually read our supporting parties manifesto? Do you know the oppositions manifesto? I mean lets be honest, it doesn't make a difference anyway, the ANC will continue to rule for the next 15-20 years. The ANC should not win this election, but they will.

I hope the survey stays on the News24 website well after the elections so that we can actually go back and reflect. Anyway, I am done with my rant now. I also promise never to bring up religion nor politics as this is not that kinda blog.

Stay tuned for more exciting news. Brazil is only 27 days away, I've got the alcohol(and essentially Colin) under control and I'm planning on taking the stage soon...

  1. I couldn't agree with you more. Time to read up on our parties' manifestos and know what we are voting for. Stay focused as always.
