VOTING is important because we get to have a say in choosing leaders who will look after the people, says voter Rusila Butani.

Yesterday, the mother-of-four cast her vote at the pre-polling station at Navala Village. She said her main priority was choosing a leader who would look after the education sector as this was her main concern.

“Growing up, I know the hardships my parents faced to put me through school,” the 39-year-old said.

“My parents struggled with paying my school and boarding fees.

“Now, my two eldest daughters are both boarders and I want their education to be prioritised.”

Ms Butani, a farmer, said whoever came into power needed to place top priority on education.

“There needs to be scholarships for students and job creation. That’s very important for our young people.”

She also said the party that won the general election needed to abide by their manifesto and look after the people.
