The government has taken it upon themselves to help make it possible for the homeless to cast their vote this upcoming local municipal elections set for 1 November 2021.
Not so while ago, the homeless occupying the streets of Cape Town were threatened to be evicted after numerous complaints from locals. The ruling government pressed on how Cape Town has plenty of Shelters that are not being used for its course by the homeless, as they do not go to the shelter but rather sleep on the streets.
The same government however also took the homeless to considerations during the Covid-19 outbreak. An area was restrained and contributed to the homeless, so that they could take part in abiding to the regulations set out to avoid spreading the virus. They were offered tents, food and water but soon than later, they started leaving the area, heading back to the streets.
During the earlier vaccination roll out, the homeless were assisted in getting vaccinated, adding to the number of South Africans fully vaccinated. And now, it looks like again the government is going all out in making certain every citizen head out to the polls to cast their vote, strategizing to assist the Cape Town homeless residents to also make it to the voting station.
An official statement with the outlined plan of how the programme will go about is yet to be released for public knowledge. In the meantime, the government urges all south Africans to consider taking the jab to move South Africa forward.
