The ActionSA party has said it is open to partnering with any political parties after the 2021 elections, just as long as they are not named the ANC, the message was sent on Wednesday 3 November. The Herman Mashaba-led party is projecting a win of 20% in Johannesburg.


Speaking to the media after reading hugely favourable results in Gauteng, the party’s spokesperson Lerato Ngobeni has been left in great spirits.

“We are feeling quite encouraged, quite inspired. It has been a very tumultuous year but is at such a natural high,” Ngobeni said.

“We can’t believe the work we did in one year has put us in third place in Johannesburg.

“This is what we have been gunning for since our president [Herman Mashaba] is gunning for Mayor. We are very excited.”


With a rate of 16% as of Wednesday morning’s 2021 elections continuing results count, the party is now expected to strategise on who they will work with in Johannesburg.

Ngobeni confirmed that the party did hold a meeting to discuss the decision and a decision is expected to be announced by Thursday.

“We have had the discussion [who ActionSA] will work with, but we have vehemently made it clear we are willing to work with any organisation that represents South Africans, and the people of Johannesburg in particular, just not the African National Congress.

“That stance has not changed and will not change.”

Asked what is the reason for the decision based on policies, Ngobani said corruption is ActionSA’s public enemy number one.

“Every South African knows the African National Congress is a corrupt organisation,” she concluded.

Meanwhile, the 2021 elections have so far counted 64 percent of the results. As of 7:24 on Wednesday, the ANC is on course to finish an election with less than 50% of the vote across South Africa. The IEC said it was pushing to finalise 90 percent of the vote by midnight.
