Lekota urges South Africans to vote wisely

Congress of the People (Cope) leader, Mosiuoa Lekota, has once again called upon South Africans to vote wisely in the upcoming Local Government Elections scheduled for the 3 August this year.

Lekota is carrying this message in his three province tour. The tour started in Ficksburg, Free State, on Saturday, passed through Gauteng and is heading to North West.

He has told Phomolong residents in Atteridgeville on Sunday that it is time to stop voting for political parties that fail to honour their promise.

“Any party that is in power, abusing it with the arrogance that the ANC is driving today, is simply inimical to the development in this country. President Nelson Mandela told the workers in July 1993 that the ANC can easily turn against them; and that when it does he said if the ANC does to you what the apartheid government did to you, then you must do to the ANC what you did to the apartheid government. Strictly speaking, we must remove the ANC from power. We must give a lie to the story of President Jacob Zuma who said the ANC will be in power until Jesus Christ comes back.”
