South African opposition embarks on voters registration drive

Voters registration drive underway in South Africa
By John Eche
Ahead of the scheduled 2019 General Elections, the opposition Democratic Alliance, DA party in South Africa has commenced a voters registration drive.
A sample of the package was gleaned from its twitter handle:

“In 2019, we can choose a government that ensures the rights of all South Africans are guaranteed.” Let us go our in our numbers to today! If you are not sure of where to go, visit

Analysts say that at the moment, the party to beat in the polls remains the ruling African National Congress, ANC, which has led the nation since the new Republic of South Africa came into effect in 1994 with the inauguration of the Nelson Mandela presidency.

Another fairly strong contender is the Economic Freedom Fighters, EFF, a breakaway from the ANC that is led by the maverick former youth leader of the ruling party, Julius Malema.
