Opinion: Voters need education and tolerance

Adrian Louw - This election has yielded terrible incidents of dumping sewage, burning voting stations, preventing meetings by opposition and worst of all, killing a person whose only ''crime'' was wearing a DA shirt!

It really reflects very badly on the governing party that in 20 years they have not instilled a respect for opposing opinion and educated all citizens on the rights but also responsibilities of the voter!
