Voters brave the rain to make their mark

Despite the rain, lines were snaking around the Cape Town Civic Centre as people waited to cast their vote for Ward 115 in today’s Local Government Elections.

The lines kept flowing at the Cape Town Civic Centre despite the rain.
Devon Reynolds from De Waterkant said it was important for him to participate as a citizen of South Africa. “I believe people can’t complain about the state of the country if they don’t take an active role to change things.”
James Campbell from De Waterkant said: “We need to be active citizens and be part of change, so we need to vote for change.”
Khutso Mogoane from Foreshore is a first-time voter. “I didn’t register before because we don’t see any change in society and I didn’t think my vote would make a difference, but this time, I decided to make my vote count.”
Elizabeth Coetzee from Cape Quarter said: “I would like the DA to keep their promise to look after street people. There are still far too many homeless people. They’ve only so far fulfilled half of it, but I’d really like to see proper shelters and help for the homeless.”
