Lester Kiewit speaks to Mmusi Maimane, executive leader of the One South Africa Movement.

- Lester Kiewit is joined by Mmusi Maimane, leader of the One South Africa Movement to talk about the forthcoming local elections

- The country goes to the polls on 1 November for the local government elections 2021


There's just over a month to go until South Africans head to the polls for the 2021 local government elections on 1 November.

Political parties have been out in their various communities canvassing for those all-important votes ahead of voting day.

But why don't independent candidates canvas and introduce themselves, asks The Morning Review host Lester Kiewit?

On Monday's show, Kiewit was joined by Mmusi Maimane, leader of the One South Africa Movement, and posed that question to the former DA leader.

Often independents don't get a fair run mainly because they don't have the financial resources to take on the big parties.

People must get to know you, says Mainmane, and that doesn't happen overnight.

In Samora Machel, there's a [independent] candidate who's been working in the community forever...these are the South Africans we want to get behind.

The campaign season isn't just about going on the day and saying vote for me or in the weeks leading up to it.
