South Africa - Born Free - 23 Apr 2014
Around 20 million South Africans – or some 40 percent of the population – are so-called “Born Frees,” the term bestowed on the first generation to grow up with no memory of apartheid. April 27 this year marks the 20th anniversary of South Africa's first multi-racial elections, which ended three centuries of white domination and 46 years of formalised oppression of the black majority under the apartheid system.

Thandi said that it is "definitely important for young people to vote because they are the ones who will have to live with the outcome the longest.

First-time voter Sanele Gasa, 19, sits in the living room of his home in Inanda near Durban April 10, 2014. Sanele said "I don't see, to be honest, the importance of voting. It seems like when you vote and when you don't vote it's all the same. Because I know people who have voted for years and nothing has changed for them. Like my Dad, he still lives in a mud house. He was born in 1961 and he is still living in a mud house. He has been registered for plenty time for the RDP houses in the local community. There's no change. His house can fall on him during the night, no-one knows when it's raining hard. But I did register for voting. This is my first time voting, because I am a born free, I was born in 1994. It will be hard and I'll be honest for me to choose a party."

Ever since I did not receive any bursaries, nothing. I couldn't go to varsity at all yet I had passed very well.

They want things to go in the right way, especially with the youngster's education. Most of the youngsters finishing school now are still without jobs. So that's one thing the political parties need to turn around, to create more jobs in South Africa".
