“No Votes For You Until You Fix Our Stolen Railway Tracks” — South Africans Tell Fikile

News Hub Creator 09/21/2021

South Africans are asking Fikile Mbalula to first go and fix the dilapidated railway tracks under his care before coming to campaign for another vote, saying that nearly all the railway tracks the ANC inherited from the apartheid regime have been stolen, vandalized or totally abandoned. They wondered why the minister of Transport should be coming to campaign for another votes for his ruling political party when he knows that the transportation ministry under his care is not doing well. Several people said that before Mr Fikile Mbalula aka Mr Fix it became the minister of Transport, they were using trains because it was cheaper and highly affordable. They noted that now they pay exorbitant transportation fares to go about their normal business. One man complained, “Bro… I was paying R160 for a monthly ticket, and it meant unlimited rides for that whole month. Now I have to spend about R800 on a taxi monthly”. Many others complained of the same thing.

This recent campaign is not going well for the ANC in many parts of the country. Recently, a well-known mayor was chased away from campaigning in his town. President Cyril Ramaphosa's campaign in Soweto was also obstructed by angry residents, who said that they had no electricity since two years ago and that the government did not fulfil most of the promises made to them. People like Andile Lungisa is pleading with the people to vote for the ANC Again, saying that they will perform better in the Metro this time around. They are finding it difficult to campaign for this local government election. This shows that the political terrains of the country have changed and people are now demanding for accountability, good service delivery and no longer partisanship as it used to be. People are already searching for alternatives and this will make the ANC is wake up from their slumber. The massive corruption and embezzlement of public funds within the high-ranking officers is not helping the party at all.

Lamenting over the decay of railway tracks in the country, a South African lady said that the system is crumbling under the watch of Mr Fikile Mbalula and yet, he is campaigning again for his party. She said it is an insult to the people of South Africa. She finally wrote, “Since minister of Transport Fikile Mbalula took this position he has been nothing but useless and incompetent the collapse of PRASA and railway service should be directly put to him. Cable theft and looting of railway is worse under him”.
