South Africa votes: Few youth expected to participate

More than five million South Africans under 30 who are eligible to vote have not registered.

Millions of young South Africans will not be voting in Wednesday’s general elections.

They say they are turning their backs on politics because they are unable to get jobs. They also have other grievances.
