SOWETO - With concerns around the lack of basic service delivery in Soweto, many voters in the south of Johannesburg say they cannot leave this year's elections to chance.
Saturday is the last chance for South Africans to ensure that they have their say when the country heads to the polls this year.
Some first-time voters in Protea Glen say they are grabbing the opportunity to register to vote with both hands.
As issues relating to water, electricity and sanitation worsen across Gauteng, so has the dissatisfaction among residents in Soweto, prompting some voters to register for the first time for the upcoming elections.
In Protea Glen, a community that is often rocked by service delivery protests, Siyabonga Zulu told Eyewitness News that he is hoping that this time around, his preferred political party will deliver on promises made.
African National Congress (ANC) president Cyril Ramaphosa will be in this community on Saturday cris-crossing Soweto in an effort to encourage residents like Siyabonga to vote.
