Young community activists argue as to whether one’s vote counts or not…

” I am an activist, fighting for people’s rights but I don’t think I am going to vote….” Zintle Hashe

” The government is meant to serve the people but they don’t care… we have to change the mindset of the people…”
” Look how the ANC have been looting…. the other parties want power so that they can carry on doing the same….” Lukhanyo Madyibi

” It doesn’t do anyone any favours if you don’t vote…. ” Zukiswa Vuka

” All the politicians are the same, they come with promises and after the elections they’re gone, they’ve forgotten the people… ” Tameron January
