Use your vote wisely to rid our coun­try of poverty

Post - - OPINION - SI­MON TI­MOTHY DEHAL Veru­lam

A HAPPY NEW year to ev­ery­one. May you and your loved ones have a happy, safe, healthy, pros­per­ous and blessed 2019 and suc­cess­fully meet the many chal­lenges that lie ahead.

Let us all be pos­i­tive and hope­ful for God’s many bless­ings and not be de­mo­ti­vated to inaction and ap­a­thy by the evils of crime, de­cep­tion, fraud, vi­o­lence, cor­rup­tion, racism, xeno­pho­bia and other mal­ices that abound.

In­di­vid­u­ally and col­lec­tively, we all must play our part to rid our beloved Mzansi of these scourges.

Poverty is South Africa’s, and in­deed Africa’s, big­gest chal­lenge and neme­sis.

This piv­otal is­sue should be ad­dressed at all lev­els as a pri­or­ity, so that we can have a bet­ter life as we share our pre­cious re­sources, tal­ents, and pro­vi­sions.

Vot­ers, please vote wisely. Dis­cern­ment is cru­cial in the na­tional elec­tions this year to en­sure that we progress as a renowned na­tion and our con­sti­tu­tional rights are up­held.
