Come Election Day, on 8 May this year, I sincerely hope that each South African will do their part by making their mark.
Too often I hear people say, "I don't vote, what difference does it make?" This frustrates me more than I can put into words. If every single person in South Africa who feels this way doesn't vote, how many people will end up not voting?
Have you ever stopped to think of the impact all these 'non-votes' will make? By not voting, you ultimately give your 'vote' to the ruling party. That's it, bottom line.
Surely, if you want things in SA to change, you will vote!
So please, do the right thing, vote on 8 May. Make your mark - it counts!
Western Cape Health Minister Nomafrench Mbombo has said: "Wearing a mask or gloves when going to the supermarket or pharmacy to buy essentials, is ineffective, unnecessary, and will not protect you from the Coronavirus. In fact, it spreads the virus faster because it makes you a carrier from one person to another; it also gives false security that you don’t need to wash or sanitise your hands." Do you agree with this?
Yes: She is right. They give people a false sense of security and they don't wash their hands.
No: Many people who wear face masks and gloves also wash and sanitise their hands often
