Johannesburg - Jobs and free education are just some of the desires of young voters as they wait in line to cast their votes.
Two young men from Etwatwa, in the east of Gauteng who stood in line on the chilly autumn morning, said they were using their first-time vote to bring change.
Banele Khumalo, 20, said he has decided to support a party that will bring free education especially because he plans to further his studies in 2020.
“It’s my first time voting for a party that will bring change since next year we are going to varsity. That party should bring free education and they should think about us and not themselves. I also want that party to have young leaders and not old ones,” Khumalo said.
His friend Lucky Chisane shared similar sentiments and said he also wanted change and free education. Chisane said the ANC had failed to bring change to people’s lives and maybe a new party would be able to succeed.
