I found myself wondering why i wasn’t in the least interested in going and casting my vote. I am normally SO outspoken and opinionated about political matters during informal twitter and classroom debates yet now that the time has come to convert my voice from all talk to action- i just simply wasn’t interested! All over my time line on twitter i was reading stories of people celebrating their democratic maturity by casting their votes, yet this in no manner even booed my spirits to want to vote!
I have now sadly found myself becoming a cynic who is fast losing hope in the over used phrase of ‘every vote counts’ and the ideology of a government that delivers to its people. I trust that my feelings are not a reflection of the youth of South Africa as if that is so, we are SO screwed!
