Former Mayor of Johannesburg Herman Mashaba has hailed the Historical judgment by the apex constitutional court which declared the Electoral Act has unconstitutional!
Electioneering process is the core basis of any democracy, this means that this judgment has changed the entire political system, every South African has a right to run for public office as an independent.
In celebration to the Judgement outcome, Herman Mashaba listed out things that must be done to ensure the judgement is fully implemented.
Today’s judgement is a victory on the road towards electoral reform! But there is more that will need to be done to make sure Parliament amends the Electoral Act to create direct ACCOUNTABILITY for the voters of our country without sacrificing fairness.
Parliament must amend the Electoral Act to provide for a change to our electoral system. We want to see an amendment that creates a mixed electoral system, providing for at least half of the 400 seats to be directly elected through constituencies.
The problem is with MPs & current political parties, being completely opposed to any form of direct accountability.
The fallout they would experience from any form of direct accountability would be disastrous for them, given the poor calibre of candidates parties put forward.
This is why the political party that I am working to establish has placed electoral reform as one of our key values.
While we will push for these reforms in Parliament, we are going to live the principle of accountability internally.
Our party will commit to subject aspirant candidates to a system of primary elections, where members of the public will be able to vote for candidates from our party that they would like to see standing in their community when they go to the ballot box.
What arises form this is a much higher calibre of candidate, chosen by the residents of that area, to serve that community.
This same system will be used as a performance management system to hold candidates to account should they fail the residents who elected them.

People are shocked to see an old woman such as Angie Motshekga roaming around with a young man. This is totally unacceptable and people know that leaders should lead by example and practice what they preach.
Surely everyone has the right to be in a relationship with whomever they want to. But there are certain limits when it comes to a professional level. Certain professions do not allow people to date in a certain age group.
It is also a norm to people that most celebrities and high profile people have social media accounts. This is helpful to many people, as they get updates and keep up with trends from such people.
The power of social media is real and many people benefit from it. It should be recalled that there are plenty of drawbacks that come along with social media. Some people are subjected to cyber-bullying and a lot has been victimized. This is totally dishonourable.
Some accounts and pages on Facebook are verified, to show that it is the real owner behind that account. This allows people to know that it is not a random person who is using this account. It should always come into consideration that accounts can be hacked. People can take over your account and post funny stuff about it. This is the reason why some people are not convinced about Angie Motshekga accepting this relationship status on Facebook. A lot is questionable here.
It is alleged that his account was hacked. Although people are curious and suggest that he is not telling the truth. This caused a stir on social media.
