Dear Bay Weekly:
I congratulate you on the Election Educator [Oct. 28]. The present, mid-term election is my second experience in your country after the Barack Obama victory two years ago. The rubbishing of candidates of opposing camps is no different from electioneering in my own country, South Africa. You aptly put it as “a season of mud-slinging.”
As a retired councilman of the City of Cape Town, I discern certain similarities and differences in the contenders, here and back home.
