From stability and success during the dark days of apartheid to his reluctant road to politics. This is the story of how our President, Herman Mashaba is taking the values of success he learned in business, and using them to change the face of South African politics.
National Chairperson of ActionSA, Author and Proud South African, Michael Beaumont was born and raised in Durban, and educated at Michaelhouse and Rhodes University.
Michael served 9 years as the Managing Director of the DA in KZN and Gauteng, and in 2016, Herman Mashaba appointed him as his chief of staff in the City of Johannesburg.
After the collapse of the Johannesburg coalition government in 2019, Michael co-founded The People’s Dialogue and ActionSA with Herman Mashaba and André Coetzee.
The Senate of ActionSA, our highest decision-making body, reflects the rich diversity of South Africa, and includes individuals with a wide range of skills and expertise from both political and non-political backgrounds.
