The local elections are upon us again. The ANC will be returned to power. This defies all sensible logic when one considers their dismal performance as far as service delivery is concerned. Are the people who vote for the ANC sane or just very badly informed of what should be!!
It is time that the politicians are made accountable to the people and not a political party.
This is another piece that I wrote:
CONTRACT FOR POLITICIANS
Would we have politicians if we made them sign a contract for our vote? This contract could take the following format.
“I Joe Politician for your vote Joe Voter undertake to do the following for you:-
a. I will not sleep in Parliament.
b. I will not submit false claims to get extra money.
c. I will stop all bribery, corruption and graft in our country.
d. I will make sure that everyone who wants to work will get a job.
e. I will make sure every family will have a house.
f. I will eradicate all crime.
g. I will make sure that everyone will have access to decent and affordable health care.
h. I will sort out the education system.
Should I Joe Politician within six months have failed to achieve all the above I will resign my position and will not be entitled to receive any gratuity of any nature whatsoever?
Signed Joe Politician
--- Signed Joe Voter
Would we still have politicians? This is a wonderful pipe dream.
