The gale of defections and need to vote wisely

Over 50 lawmakers have moved from one party to another. Yes, there were celebrations among supporters depending on which side they belong. But   as voters, we must be wary of selfish politicians as the 2019 elections approach. We should not be carried away by mere promises. Each politician should be judged by the level of representation he/she has provided in the past. And for the newcomers on the scene, we should read through their manifestoes and also investigate them properly before casting our votes. Enough is enough. We cannot allow the politicians to continue to take us for granted.
