Elections done! What now?

Now that the elections are over I am sure that that’s the question lingering in almost everyone’s head and it makes sense because the ANC has always been in charge of most provinces but now the DA is also pulling up their socks. Some people believe this is the start of a new era in democracy where people will actually have another party to compare with when it comes to the ANC,while other people are afraid of what will happen next because it is something new. I’m also nervous on behalf of the ruling party because people are actually fed up,they are tired of the devil that they know.

This is the time where the ANC needs to prove themselves of being capable of remaining the ruling party and also,the DA needs to earn the people’s trust by looking out for them and keeping their promises. From all the tweets and Facebook posts that I have come across, it is clear that people are very uncertain of the future and would like to trust the ruling party but for how long? #IfDAWins has been trending for days now and if you go through these posts it is obvious that people are trying to deal with the stress through exposing how they think it will affect the country, which shows that there is still work that needs to be done!! Our people still associate white people with apartheid.

I came across a post,actually posts which clearly showed that people think that this is the start of apartheid 2.0 and this may be the reason why some people have been clinging on the ruling party. This is the time where the ANC needs to put their house in order and address issues that need to be addressed, just like how the silent protesters were treated when the President was giving his speech…that was the perfect opportunity to makes things right but very. Let me not even talk about the ANCWL because they are all about protecting their president more than the women of this country! Women are always being silenced for telling their stories and not even the ruling party can stand up for abused women.
