ActionSA Launches Petition for Unsuccessful Nasi Ispani Applicants

ActionSA has today launched a petition, asking the 1.2 million unsuccessful Nasi Ispani applicants to support its appeal under the Promotion of Access to Information Act (PAIA) in response to the provincial government’s decision to deny our request for access to the employment records of each person hired through the flawed program.

The objective of the petition is to solicit support from applicants who were denied posts in the hiring scheme led by Gauteng Premier, Panyaza Lesufi, to ensure that the provincial government is held accountable for its misuse of state resources for campaigning.

As previously stated, the employment scheme is an electioneering strategy used by the ANC to attempt to secure votes within the province, enabling the party to continue exploiting state resources and maintaining control.

In Gauteng, 63.9% of the youth are unemployed. This dire situation has arisen due to the current government’s inability to provide sufficient resources and economic opportunities to empower the youth, who are now victims of poverty.

If Panyaza and the province remain adamant that they have nothing to conceal, then they must be prepared to divulge any pertinent material that is of public importance and interest.

After the upcoming elections, ActionSA will assume power and ensure that millions of people’s lives are improved, and the years of economic harm inflicted by the current government are addressed in a morally just way that prioritizes economic development.
