GOING FOR BROKE
IT’S an expensive business running an election campaign – printing posters, paying for venues for campaigning, printing T-shirts and everything else that goes with winning the hearts of voters.
“So if you don’t have money you’re in trouble,” says political expert Ralph Mathekga.
Spare a thought for the All Things Are Possible (Atap) party in Cape Town, which can clearly afford only handwritten posters that don’t do the best job of competing with the rather slicker lamppost offerings.
“I doubt this will inspire confidence in many people,” marketing and advertising expert Groovin Nchabeleng says. “I also wonder how many posters one can write by hand and distribute.”
Maybe all things aren’t possible after all.
