ActionSA Announces Funzi Ngobeni as Gauteng Provincial Chairperson

ActionSA is pleased to announce that Funzi Ngobeni will assume the role of Gauteng Provincial Chairperson following the departure of Bongani Baloyi.

ActionSA President, Herman Mashaba, has concluded engagements with the Senate and the Gauteng PEC consulting structures on the decision to appoint Ngobeni. Ngobeni’s nomination was met widely with support.

Ngobeni was amongst the first to join ActionSA in the early days and has proven his ability to lead structures of ActionSA. Ngobeni previously served as the Director of Operations as was responsible for setting up structures of ActionSA across the country. In large part the results achieved in Gauteng in the 2021 arose from Ngobeni’s work in establishing and supporting structures of the party.

Ngobeni has served in government in the City of Johannesburg in the 2016 and 2021 terms of office and his leadership provided in council and within the coalition has been exemplary.

ActionSA is positioned well to emerge as the largest party of a new governing coalition in Gauteng following the 2024 national and provincial elections. It is imperative that our structures in Gauteng are led effectively towards the purpose of ActionSA being the alternative to failed ANC governance.

We wish Ngobeni well and are confident that his leadership will put Gauteng on the path to victory in 2024.
