United Democratic Movement (UDM) members in the Free State held their last election campaign in Botshabelo on Sunday.
Many households in the Free State are still without proper toilets.
UDM’s provincial premier candidate, Steven Lebeko, promised to do away with pit toilets and the bucket system – should he be given a chance to govern the province.
Lebeko says party leader, Bantu Holomisa, is a credible person that can take the Free State and the country forward.
“We still have the pit toilets around here, we still have the buckets system, and people are still using the bucket system in the Free State, 25 years into democracy.
“What has happened in the ANC whereby we are still seated with people who are still using the bucket system? We say that if we are going to be voted into power, I want to make this promise as a leader of this organisation in the Free State, I’m going to make sure that these lives of the people are in the doldrums are changed for the better,” Lebeko explains.
