I am Neil Eugene Thorne, born on 24 July 1969 at Willowdene, Port Elizabeth. I was raised in a strong Christian household where my leadership qualities came out in the church communities.
From primary school I started writing poems and songs, but could not go further studies. I could only at the time complete my introductory course to engineering studies whilst working as a quality controller in the motor industry. Currently I am a laboratory technician by trade and will grab the opportunity for further studies should the opportunity present itself.
In the 1970’s we were forcefully removed from our habitat by the then Group Areas Act of the Apartheid government. At high school in the 1980’s, I became active in the political field by addressing the “struggle” and showing our disapproval with the then government by boycotting.
I served on the school representative council and youth structures that were serious about our freedom. This is where my foundation in politics were formed.
When the founder of Compatriots of South Africa (CSA) shared his vision with me, we immediately agreed on this long awaiting Godsend purpose which we knew had to be executed.
Together we made sure the registration process was done correctly and started sensitising our people of our endeavours. Currently I am the National Chairperson of CSA and am planning on always being a part of this political party regardless of which role I fulfil.
My motto in life is to be solution-driven and knowing we are more than conquerors by helping those who are in dire need to assist in any possible way. Being the National Chairperson of CSA will definitely give me the platform and resources I need to fulfil my motto and mission in life.
When I look at the downtrodden and forgotten citizens of our beloved country, it urges me to do the best I can to improve their lives. I joined CSA because I know I can make a difference in the lives of many people. I believe that CSA is the vehicle that can restore the dignity of our people by creating developmental sustainability within our society and country.
By creating permanent and specialised employment in for our communities through a consistent socioeconomic environment by a sustainable development, we can improve the lives of the people in our nation.
If CSA comes in government we will scrap all labour brokers and implement a special force to deal with crime and drug issues. We will allow and empower our people to be productive through skills development.
Our people have degrees, but have no jobs.
It is time that we give those people the opportunities they deserve by creating a permanent employment structure whereby skilled and qualified specialists in any field can be appointment to assist in the development of those who are still oppressed due to them having to leave schools to help provide for their households.
There is so much that we want to do to help our people and our country. We have all the people in our country who can all play a part in saving our country from demising due to continuous corruption by the ANC government.
Help us help our country by casting your vote for CSA. Give us the chance and we will show you how we will restore the dignity of our people.
