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.

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 Sibusiso Zitha, 18.

"I am voting because I think this country needs a change. We need to end corruption and I think my vote will count, especially since it's my first time. I'm voting just to make a change," said Sibusiso.
