Human beings can live for forty days without food, four days without water, and four minutes without air. But we cannot live for four seconds without hope – Hal Lindsey

I apologise for only voting for the first time at the last elections. I apologise for being lackadaisical all these years. I apologise for allowing stories of bribery to cops or projects given unscrupulously and accepting this as “a way of life” and not reporting about it or speaking up. I apologise for letting the termites and locusts eat at the foundation of this nation. Maybe it’s taken us over 50 years to wake up from this slumber.

Moving forward, I promise to speak up and not partake in questionable activities and it starts by at least voting. As it has taken us over 50 years to get to this stage, we can’t expect change to happen overnight although we live in a world of instant gratification perpetuated by social media. I will try to make a difference for the next generation and for the next generation; be heard by registering and utilising your right to vote. For the rest of us, fight the good fight and don’t give up hope.
