Election fever upon us

The National- Thursday, January 20, 2011

 ELECTION fever is already gripping us already.

The odds of choosing wrong leaders in the 2012 national election are very high.

The average voter does not care any more about party policies and what services they would get. 

During past campaigns they hear thousands of promises from their trusted leaders and hoped for the better. 

However, their hopes were shattered when they did not get all they were promised.

There are many things that contribute to the MPs’ successes or failures and many village people do not understand that fact. 

The government must embark on a nationwide awareness to explain why leaders cannot deliver that they promise their voters, and how the non-delivery may be linked to the governing party’s policies and availability of funds.

In recent elections, people are casting their votes for money – they will continue to sell their vote for money and food.

People must choose from heart, not from what they have received for their stomach and pockets.
