ActionSA says it has written to the City of Johannesburg demanding the return and re-installation of ActionSA Voter Registration posters which were “unlawfully” confiscated by the Johannesburg Metro Police Department (JMPD).
ActionSA President Herman Mashaba said they are advised that the instruction to take down ActionSA posters was provided by JMPD director, Mathokoza Kgaswane, allegedly because “the election has not been proclaimed.”
Mashaba demanded that the posters be returned and re-installed within the next 24 hours, otherwise, they will have no option but to seek an urgent spoliation order from the courts against the JMPD. “We will not be undermined and censored by those who have been captured by the ANC. ActionSA will not be silenced. We will not cower in the face of political reprisal. The stakes for South Africans are simply too high.”
He added that South Africans are enough with corruption, load-shedding, service delivery failures, rising unemployment, crime, cadre deployment, and gross incompetence of the state.
“The only way to fix South Africa is for the 18.3 million South Africans who did not vote, to stand together to elect an ethical and competent government that will serve the people of our country over the party they represent.” Concluded Mashaba.
