With the African National Congress (ANC) set to elect it's president at the national conference this weekend, Stephen Grootes says no matter what happens, the real force for change is your vote in 2019.
Grootes describes how the country has reached a state of paralysis because of the looting that has taken place in government.
In 20 years the outcome, where we will be could be exactly the same point but there is one thing you will have felt in the last six or seven years, it's that feeling in the pit of your stomach that as a country we are kind of going nowhere, where is your Christmas bonus this year, the hope you had that your children would be richer than you?— Stephen Grootes, 702 anchor
Instead there has really just been paralysis and the evidence is overwhelming now, there has been looting.— Stephen Grootes, 702 anchor
We need to end this paralysis, we need to be politically active. Democracy is about those who turn up, we need to get our country going, stop this limbo and we really need to stop the looting.— Stephen Grootes, 702 anchor
