On Monday, November 1st, election held in all South African constituency. Local elections were held across the country, with people coming out of their comfort zone to vote. One of the largest subways in South Africa is Johannesburg. People wanted to know if it was largely won by one side or if things would change. To everyone's surprise, a new party surprisingly won a county that previously belonged to the ANC.
The newly formed party, owned by businessman Herman Mashaba, reportedly has a district belonging to the African National Congress in Joburg. ActionSA, a newly opened party, has won a majority and left the ANC in disbelief. Below is the result report:
"Wow!" @Action4SA just won a VD from ANC in Soweto.
Protea Glen . Elementary School
ActionSA 34% (+34)
ANC 32% (-26)
EFF 25% (-6)
YES 3% (-4)
(none in 2016)
Just wow. @Action4SA almost half ANC here"
No one expected such an outcome because the party did not exist in 2016 when regional head elections were held. The party entered the game not so long ago, but has now won constituents who are part of the African National Congress.
All these actions and their results show that many South Africans are fed up with the African National Congress. They were simply looking for a better alternative to what the ANC didn't offer them, and it seems Herman Mashaba's political party gave them that option. Many other constituencies are still waiting for the results and it looks like ActionSA will surprise many South Africans as this is a new party taking power. Action SA may not have won most districts or once, but it definitely shows she is here to stay.
