The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviews independent political analyst Mpumelelo Mkhabela.

South Africans will vote in their country’s sixth democratic general elections on Wednesday, 8 May.

The issues include corruption and State Capture, economic growth, the electricity crisis, land reform, crime, service delivery and immigration.

Many people in the country feel it’s the most crucial elections since the first democratic one in 1994.

The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviewed independent political analyst Mpumelelo Mkhabela.

Listen to the interview in the audio below (and scroll down for quotes from it).

They [polls] have very small samples… However… I tend more to believe those that are based on turnout… You can’t project scientifically…

Mpumelelo Mkhabela, political analyst - independent

Ipsos in the municipal election in 2016… they called it correctly…

Mpumelelo Mkhabela, political analyst - independent

If you look at Zimbabwe… or Turkey… change happens in the metropolitan areas…

Mpumelelo Mkhabela, political analyst - independent
