Yesterday, ActionSA successfully launched 17 new branches in Amajuba District in KZN – welcoming over 500 new members into ranks of South Africans who are committed to fighting for ethical leadership, good governance and service delivery in each of our communities.
Following yesterday’s launch, Amajuba District is the only district in the country to boast ActionSA branches in every one of its 34 wards. With our commitment to continuous community engagement, ActionSA is growing from strength to strength in Kwa-Zulu Natal and across the country.
With over 200 000 volunteers across the country to date, this is the first of many non-metro municipalities where we will be launching new branches which demonstrate residents’ support for ActionSA’s offer for change. It was beyond inspiring to see the people of AmaJuba District brave the bitter cold and join our National Chairperson, Micheal Beaumont, and I at yesterday’s launch.
In a clear demonstration of our members’ commitment to diversity, most of the newly elected ward leaders consist of women and young people. This is a clear break with stale political tradition which side-lines women and young people from leadership roles.
Under the stewardship of ActionSA’s Newcastle mayoral candidate and Regional Campaign Manager, Fazel Cassim (a respected businessman and philanthropist), we are set to bring real change to the area.
ActionSA stands ready to provide an alternative to the broken political system that has failed South Africans. We will assemble a team of South Africans, committed to public service and not service of political parties, who have the skills, experience and knowledge to achieve our vision for a country that works for all its residents.
We look forward to contesting the Local Government Elections later this year, where the residents of will have the power to reclaim their municipalities from the selfish, the criminal and the corrupt politicians.
