Born-free - noun a member of a generation born in a country after its transition to democracy, in particular, post-apartheid South Africa - Oxford Dictionary.
South Africa will hold its sixth national and provincial elections on May 8. As part of our #Elections2019 coverage, IOL has asked 94 Born Frees for their views on the upcoming elections. Will they be voting? Who influences who they vote for, if anybody? What issue would most affect their decision on who to vote for?
While never having endured the brutality of apartheid, the Born Frees face their own struggles, including high unemployment, access to education and issues around identity.
Watch as we speak to student Bafana Zungu.
"I will be voting for this party ... because it has a good history. What I am expecting them to do now is to change our situation in Vosloorus informal settlements by providing us with electricity and build us RDP houses. I do not like the fact that they promise us change but they don't deliver. I would also like them to pay fees for us so that we could finish with our studies," Bafana said.
