Cape Town – South African comedian Trevor Noah’s hilarious video clip in which he pokes fun at some of the promises made by politicians during election time, has resurfaced on social media.
The video was also shared by One SA movement leader Mmusi Maimane on Monday.
“Not my handwriting,” Maimane captioned it.
In the video, Trevor talks about election time and mocks electioneering politicians, who often make empty promises.
“Now it’s election time which means politicians are out in full force, busy kissing babies. And Helen Zille is dancing again and speaking isiXhosa.
“You know it’s election time. The ANC has come out with a huge campaign [saying], ‘if you are not happy with service delivery then you must vote for change … we will change’,”

According to Times LIVE, the video dates back 12 years ago to Trevor’s 2009 The Day Walker stand-up comedy show.
South Africans will head to the polls on November 1 to elect the political leadership of the country’s 257 municipalities.
Social media users reacted to Trevor’s video, with some pointing to its relevance 12 years later.
