Masiphumelele residents: ‘Why should we vote? We have nothing’
Masiphumelele residents are no longer interested in politicians and their promises as South Africa prepares for the local government elections. More than 6,000 people were left homeless and others placed in temporary tin houses after a fire ravaged 1,000 homes in December last year. The residents Eyewitness News spoke to said that the government had failed them because they were still in a desperate situation, 10 months later.
