QWAQWA – Leaders of the African Congress for Transformation (ACT) addressed the community at the Phuthaditjaba square on Saturday March 17, where they reassured the people that the party is here to change their lives and fight the issue of loadshedding, water shedding and many things that are happening in the country.

The party is led by former Free State premier and erstwhile ANC secretary-general Ace Magashule.
“Today is all about a motorcade; we started in Harrismith and are here in Qwaqwa but, because of time constrains, we will probably head to Kestell sometime next week because it is also part of Maluti-a-Phofung.

“We have realized that the people of Maluti-a-Phofung love ACT because we handed out T-shirts and everyone wanted one. They promised us that they are going to vote for the African Congress for Transformation.

“They said the elephant must fall. I don’t know which elephant they are referring to but the people of Maluti-a-Phofung love ACT,” Tony Mokoena the provincial coordinator of ACT said in an interview with this publication.
ACT provincial organiser Samson Mokaeane said in the district of Thabo Mofutsanyana their focus is on Maluti-a-Phofung because the people of MAP are heartbroken and tired of the things that are happening in the current political party.
He added that people are looking for a political party that will give them a better life.

“We are here to show the people of this community that we see them. After seeing a lot of people from MAP taking up memberships, we are here to show our gratitude. ACT is led by Ace Magashule and everyone who wants to change the lives of black people will vote for us,” Mokaeane said.

According to Mojalefa Maluleka who is part of the party’s election team in MAP, this motorcade was successful because the people of MAP love ACT.
He said everyone in the streets wanted a T-shirt all because ACT is for the people by the people.

“This convoy was all about visibility to make sure that we are visible in Qwaqwa which is part of Maluti-a-Phofung. People asked us for T-shirts and enquired about how to become a member. I think that it is safe to say that the people of MAP are tired of the ruling party,” Maluleka said.
