After more than 20 years of nothing the Caledon community decided not to vote

The community of Caledon still has unfinished business with Theewaterskloof Municipality (TWK).

This follows a report-back of the memorandum handed to TWK on 4 April. Two weeks ago, on 25 April, a meeting was called at the Victoria Hall to provide feedback, but the deputy mayor was rude to me, and the people decided to leave the meeting. Since then, we are still awaiting feedback. People were excited about the elections, but decided not to vote because of their poor living conditions. After more than 20 years of democracy, the members of the community who chose not to vote are still living in shacks with dirty water running through their streets. Our children have to play in these miserable conditions. Two people were shot and killed in the protests of 4 April. The police say they are still busy investigating. Since we are waiting for these outcomes, we still don’t know who shot our people. We decided to move away from electoral lies, and embrace truth as a principle, by deciding not to vote.
