South Africans have once again refused to be co-opted into an attempt to disrupt the economy by rejecting calls for an ill-conceived national shutdown.

ActionSA has just learned of the passing of Vytjie Mentor and extends its most heartfelt condolences to the Mentor family for their loss.
ActionSA has taken note of the press conference held by Mayor Randall Williams, along with hollow threats “to consider legal action against ActionSA Leaders.” It is important to note that there is a significant difference between litigating and threatening to litigate when truth is a defence against defamation.
ActionSA is committed to making this coalition government work in the City of Tshwane because it is what the residents of this City demand from us. The residents of The Capital voted the ANC out following years of mismanagement, and we have a duty to the residents to ensure that coalitions do not give them more of the same.
Public Safety is measured not simply by the absence of crime, but also by the presence of fairness and justice. The department’s objective is to build a city where life, property and are safe and secure so that residents and businesses can live and thrive.
Today, ActionSA will submit statements taken from councillors in KwaDukuza to the Speaker of the municipality. The statements attest to an environment of fear, intimidation and violence prevailing in municipal council meetings requiring ActionSA’s motions of no confidence to be conducted by secret ballot.
ActionSA calls upon the Minister of Agriculture, Land Reform and Rural Development, Thoko Didiza, to urgently reconsider and revoke this illogical knee-jerk “decree” to ban the movement of cattle before having implemented a variety of interventions that do not threaten to decimate the livelihoods of the cattle industry.
ActionSA welcomes the eventual withdrawal of the proposal for an unsolicited bid by the Executive Mayor of Tshwane, Randall Williams. This is a victory for the people of Tshwane and a vindication of a position held by ActionSA that the proposal for an unsolicited bid in this regard would be unlawful.
ActionSA’s Senate met last night, following engagements with our caucus in the City of Tshwane, and has resolved that we will vote against a report brought by the Executive Mayor of Tshwane on the grounds that it is manifestly unlawful and in breach of the prescripts of a signed multiparty coalition agreement.
