Some Tembisa residents not convinced by party promises
Residents raised issues around informal settlements, access to water and ineffective policing.
JOHANNESBURG - Some Tembisa residents say they aren't convinced by promises from political parties that their living conditions will be improved in the community.
Residents and supporters from the African National Congress(ANC), Democratic Alliance(DA), Economic Freedom Fighters and the Inkatha Freedom Party took part in 702's special elections broadcast at the Rabasotho Community Centre yesterday.
Issues around informal settlements, access to water and electricity and complaints about an ineffective police station are just some of the issues raised by the residents.
One pensioner says she will forever be loyal to the ANC.
"I love ANC because it treats us all equally."

However, DA supporter Philip Thamahane says he has given up on the ruling party.
At the same time, Nkosinathi Madonsela says he's not convinced by any political party.
"Service delivery has been politicised and I feel they are not addressing those issues; right now I'm not inspired."
