Only 26% of South Africans have trust in the ANC-led government.

But the opposition only has 24% of the country’s confidence.

Electoral analyst, Ebrahim Fakir says that this is concerning, especially as it shows a significant drop from 2006, where South Africans showed a 60% confidence rate in the government.

He says that this is due to the performance of political parties over that 18-year period.

Fakir has meanwhile sought to address the perception that disillusioned South Africans want a benevolent dictatorship over the current government.

He says that this thinking makes way for freedoms to be removed.

This as South Africans enjoy many democratic freedoms, but the failures are evident in the governance of the state.
