The Rep reporter
took to the streets of Komani to ask people what they hoped would happen in their lives in 2019.
I would love to see a better future for my family and my grandchildren. I would also like to see an improvement in the cleanliness of our town and for the community to stand together, including helping each other. Each person has a purpose. In Jeremiah in the Bible, it is written that God said that He knew him while he was in his mother’s womb and He called him to be a prophet. This means we all have a purpose and I would love for God’s purpose to be fulfilled in my life in 2019.
The world has changed and technology is growing rapidly. People have grown lazy, because everything is easy and I wish that my grandchildren would not be victims of social media platforms that are allowing children to miss out on a real-life experience.
We were brought to halls with promises that we would benefit from the second phase of houses to be built, yet phase one has not even been completed. My first child is 12 and when we were called, my child was not even born yet. If the municipality can not build us houses, it is best that they give us sites so we can build our own homes. When it is time to vote, they will pretend to fix things but they will not. I just wish they could fix their shortcomings in 2019.
I wish the way our municipality employs people would change and that they would employ more young people. We do not all have the experience that is required and there are many young people who do not have jobs who have turned to drugs. I wish when we apply for jobs we could stop being asked for our numbers. As a woman you find you have to pay with your body if you want a job.
