DURBAN - Popular South African actress Pearl Thusi asked her Twitter followers if they had noticed how potholes were being fixed in their areas ahead of the 2021 local government elections on November 1.

Thusi added that South Africans needed to find an alternate option to the ANC

“I swear if the ANC wins elections again then we just have a deep rooted self hate as a nation. We have to find another option,” she tweeted.

The actress said she was struggling to decide which party to vote for on Monday.

“With everything I feel for our beloved ANC. I’d sooner be caught dead than vote for the DA. Still struggling to choose which option is best strategically. Yes- I vote strategically. Because even though my vote may look like it doesn’t make a difference- it’s MY vote & it MATTERS,” she said.
