SA Youth: Politicians Not For Us

Season 6 Episode 12

Thu, 13 Apr 2017 12:00am


“You are privileged to be staying in South Africa because there are countries far worst than us, but the problem is our leaders are very corrupt”

“…starting a political party is business and that’s South Africa, its all about business not about people”

A civil duty or an utter waste of time? Listening to these four South African youths one could easily come to the conclusion that they have lost all faith in the electoral process, largely blaming a so called failing and corrupt government. But what about the power of the voter? Watch this episode as our participants discuss corrupt politics, current and past leadership and the power (or lack thereof) of the vote.
