SCHWEIZER-RENEKE - Political party leaders visiting Schweizer-Reneke in North West to woo voters ahead of the January 15 by-election in the Mamusa municipality, will be greeted by hunger and poverty.
Getting into the City of Sunflowers, or SR as the town is commonly known, one is greeted by aging buildings, few real restaurants and the only fried chicken outlet in the town, which opened on December 4.
Schweizer Street links the R504 road to Ipelegeng township, where the majority of political parties expect to canvass voters, but here people are hungry and unemployed.
"I am not working, there are ten people in this house. No one is working," said Rita Ndlovu.
The 25-year-old said they survived on social grants.
