In a historic turn of events, ActionSA is elated to learn and inform South Africans that we have achieved an 8.47% win translating to 5 seats in the Kwa-Dukuza Municipal Council in Kwa-Zulu Natal.
From the outset of our campaign, we set out to bring the African National Congress (ANC) under 50% wherever we contested, and we are proud to have achieved that goal in Kwa-Dukuza.
We are humbled that, as a party that is just over one year-old, we have made an undeniably groundbreaking mark in the six municipalities we contested – Johannesburg, Tshwane, Ekurhuleni, eThekwini, Kwa-Dukuza, and Newcastle.
We are proud of all our ground structures and the leaders who directed their collective efforts. For Kwa-Dukuza, particularly, we are proud of ActionSA’s Mayoral Candidate, Nel Sewraj, and his team, for a job well done.
More than our team’s efforts, however, it is the people of Kwa-Dukuza who deserve the highest accolades for taking their power back and voting out bad, inefficient, and corrupt governance.
ActionSA’s message, to the effect that we can FIX South Africa by fixing our municipalities, clearly resonated with them and they took the ACTION to vote for professional, corruption-free governance that provides services to all residents, and in an efficient manner.
As stated in our press briefing, held this morning at the IEC National Results Operations Centre (ROC) in Tshwane, it appears that what has characterized these elections for ActionSA is our unique appeal to all South Africans – across the racial and socio-economic spectrum. We are a party for all communities in the kaleidoscope of our country. If any political party hopes to capture the hearts and minds of South Africans towards the 2024 National Government Elections, it will be a party that unites South Africans, not one that divides them.
ActionSA is committed to removing failing local governments across our country and replacing them with efficient, customer-oriented, and caring governments that deliver quality basic services to all communities, especially those who need them the most.
