ActionSA says that over 420 businesses have already signed up to participate in its class-action lawsuit against President Cyril Ramaphosa, Police Minister Bheki Cele and the African National Congress (ANC) over the recent unrest that happened in KwaZulu-Natal and Gauteng last month.
Action SA president, Herman Mashaba says they want to be part of processes that advance their interests, and not those of political parties, their bosses, or their benefactors.
“I remain gutted by this devastation, and share my sympathies with all those who have lost their livelihoods and loved ones as a result of these senseless ANC factional battles and acts of terrorism. These losses must be laid squarely at the ANC’s feet and my resolve to ensure that South Africans receive justice and that those responsible for the destruction we have seen here in KZN are held to account is only reinforced by each of these stories.
In addition to our legal action, we remain resolute that the President must establish an independent Judicial Commission of Inquiry into this treason. This view is only reinforced by the news that the ANC has resolved to nominate the Former Defence Minister Nosiviwe Mapisa-Nqakula to the position of Speaker of the National Assembly, effectively promoting her after her failure to prevent the riots.”
Action SA’s Lerato Ngobeni said the exponential increase in the number of businesses signing up suggests that South Africans are gatvol with inaction and politicians that do not serve them and do not serve South Africa.
