Various socio-economic indicators such as quality education and employment are some of the measures that South Africans use to decide whether the government is serving its mandate.
702/CapeTalk's Redi Tlhabi on Monday gave listeners an opportunity to share their thoughts regarding the issue.
Listen to the conversation below:
You don't use the pain of the past to make people vote for you. That is not right. Your policy should drive why people vote for you.— Graham, caller in Greenpoint
When we are angry, we burn the infrastructure that the government is building for us... What I can say is government must move away from this cadre deployment thing.— Sipho, caller in Atteridgeville
We talk about how education is supposed to be important but we're still teaching kids under trees and inside broken buses and such.— Lester, caller in Seapoint
There's no alignment with what's happening on the ground and what people are saying.— Gerhard, caller in Centurion
