Yet another political party will be added to the ballot

Yet another political party will be added to the ballot

Former DA leader Mmusi Maimane is set to launch a political party this weekend.

POLITICS Another party will be added to the ballot.by.20 September 2022 - 18:25 By Mfundo Mkhize A case of fraud, corruption and money laundering was opened against acting KwaZulu-Natal high court judge Sthembiso Mdladla and Siphiwe Mkhize, former head of the agriculture and rural development department.The lawyer for Sekola Matlaletsa says he took time to work on the summons to ensure a strong case.

The 2024 national and provincial elections are a year and a couple of months away.And the ruling ANC is still sorting itself out ahead of its elective congress in December.READ: Mkhize kick-starts epic battle against Ramaphosa With the results of the 2021 local government elections, parties are starting to smell blood.Mkhize, 63, and Mdladla, 62, were arrested when the Hawks swooped on them in a sting operation in connection with alleged fraud, corruption and money laundering regarding a 2016 tender.Getting below the 50% mark is looking increasingly possible for the ANC, that is, if other parties get their act together.A recent study by the Social Research Foundation suggests that the current opposition is not giving what it is supposed to give..

The study found that “while the ANC continues to make grave mistakes that might cost it votes, the DA is poorly positioned to exploit the governing party’s failures, while the EFF is seen to be too radical, violent, anarchic and disrespectful”.The acting judge allegedly paid a further R300k for the residual on the vehicle.READ: Polls: ANC may well get 50% in election win Perhaps that leaves space for new players to come into the fold.Former DA leader Mmusi Maimane certainly thinks so.Maimane will launch a new political party this weekend in Naledi, Soweto.Mdladla, in an affidavit submitted to court on Tuesday, said he was admitted as an advocate to the Durban bar in 1991.After leaving the DA, Maimane launched One Movement SA (OSA).You can cancel anytime.

The organisation played some role in the local government elections – helping independent candidates with their electioneering, even though it was not a political party.When you visit OSA’s website, you read the following: The political system in South Africa is broken! “For too long, South Africans have been forced to vote for political parties that select compromised, corrupt, and self-serving individuals, and force them upon the people of South Africa."As a result, corruption is rampant, our economy is failing, South Africa’s children are receiving substandard education, joblessness has hit an all-time high, public healthcare is non-existent, and South Africans are being left behind.” Further confusion..

.So, why is a man who started a ‘movement’ that says the current system is broken joining in on the chaos? Speaking to eNCA on Thursday, ntate moruti, as he is known on the Twitter streets, emulated the what kids do on Twitter and explained using a sports analogy.He said: When people decide they are going to play, typically going to play 15-men rugby, you can’t say you want to play sevens-men rugby.Maimane said the country was in crisis.“You have got to be able to put a political party that will continue to fight the electoral reform.

..but, we cannot, in any way, while Parliament blocks efforts for reform, sit back.I am standing up and saying to South Africans, yes, let us empower communities.Yes, let us invite people to fall under one body but I have a commitment to say let us bring about change in South Africa and that is what I am working on,” he said.

Political analyst Levy Ndou says that this move is not surprising.“Maimane rose within the ranks of politics in South Africa through the DA.His understanding is based on inclusivity, on giving all South Africans equal chances to participate in political activity.” Ndou adds there’s nothing wrong with Maimane forming a party after advocating for electoral reform and championing independent candidates.He is aware that to get access to a political position, the better route is through a political party.

The vision Maimane said details of the change he envisioned for the country would be revealed at the launch.“I think South Africa looks at its economy only from one lens.We have got to look at it broadly and ask ourselves some questions: Where are the economic activities? How do we support them? How do we put venture capital in communities to make sure more people can participate in the business community and up the employment levels? How do we ensure that police have better leadership so that people are much safer and, furthermore, how do we ensure that political leadership is accountable to the communities it comes from?" Ndou says it’s now a matter of waiting and seeing what ntate moruti’s political party has to offer.A record number of 48 political parties contested the 2019 elections.The more the merrier, they say.

Back on the ballot: Maimane to launch new political partyBack on the ballot: Maimane to launch new political party Mmusi Maimane will contest the 2024 General Elections as a candidate for a new political umbrella body that will be launched this weekend. MmusiMaimane as much as I like you all you guys are doing is splitting votes and keeping ANC in power... Why didn't you join a political party or endorse a political party? This is so unnecessary

Blacks launch parties like foreign nationals do with the prosperity churches, I think the objective is not to be involved in politics for the betterment of the nation but is business opportunity, self-enrichment scheme! If not why don't they join existing parties?

Maimane must go and launch his political party at the borders of Zimbabwe, Mocambique and Lesotho, or simply join EFF Wonderful news 👏 This is one party that will never go anywhere.. I place it is the same group with ATM, Hlaudi's party & Themba Godi's party. Not sure what Mmusi thinks he can do better than existing parties..

Split the vote👌✊🇿🇦 Because only the Sowetans are susceptible to politics nonsense right? Everyone who wants to launch nonsense come to Soweto. It's a shame really. Cry My Beloved Township! Useless... started on the wrong foot. He alienated himself to ordinary people and now he wants them to support him. Receipe for failure

Everyone in the black community of who's who wants to be the Boss, no one wants to follow but they want followers🤔 Ja...like a desperate man Yep, we just don't have enough of those. As a very busy person investing and getting returns was all I ever wanted so l could still retain my job. Although I'm very skeptical at first but after my cash out of R40,513 I don't need any more evidence, not persuading anyone Dm 👇👇👇 harper_parksfx If you're interested!

I saw how people testify about harper_parksfx , how she helped them earn massively, I decided to give it a try and it worked perfectly for me too got my profits successfully from her platform, this is truly amazing, interested ones should Dm her to get started harper_parksfx This pic, shady boots When hunger strikes...

Therein lies our problem. Politics is not about serving the people but access to opportunities. Everyone wants their own political party 🙄🙄🙄 The goal being to win at least one seat in parliament. For Mmusi.

Political parties in South Africa are as many as shopping malls OJay92122825 This picture does not talk to the headline. I can tell his political party will be a target of media assailments. Too little too late Oh wow! Does he really have such an opinion of himself that he believes everybody will rush put to follow him?

Sowetans must blue tick him! He must go launch at those leafy areas he lives in. Who's gonna vote for him this mampara 🤔 Still riding on the coattails of the DA his over stated his popularity If he receives 10k votes in 2024 I'll eat my oldest hat 🧢 He is obsessed with positions this one. 😂🤣😂

What happened to independent candidates ORG contesting national elections in 2024 Welele 😃😂😄 He doesn't have followers this one Politics will kill you Go for it, Mmusi. Shame Mmusi you lost in the forrest, no sober patriotic South African will vote for you MmusiMaimane He want the parliament money or salary too

Good luck pastor Every election year yena is launching a political party I know we all probably might have heard about Bitcoin but don't know how it works, I tried it in a week ago by a man who recommended me to Derrick_wright3 on Twitter he guides me through and i made a return of $10500 after a week of trading, connect with him

Instead of cape Town where he is staying. All politicians grappling for the poor uneducated masses as they are easy to lie to Our people are so greedy to a point they all of them want to lead, they just fail to just compromise n form one strong party instead of this madness. That's why most of a people loose interest to vote
