Mashaba urges supporters to donate R30 for 2024 elections

Cape Town – ActionSA leader Herman Mashaba has launched a fundraising campaign for the party’s efforts in the 2024 elections, appealing to supporters to donate R30.

Mashaba said that as a new political party, ActionSA relies solely on donations from passionate South Africans to spread its message of hope and change, contrasting it with established parties that receive billions in state funding.

The funds raised will be used for party structures, rallies, campaign gear, and other activities, he said.

“Can you spare R30? The project of fixing our country is a massive task and it will not be possible without your support.

“While established political parties receive billions of rands in funding from the state, ActionSA, as a new political party, depends entirely on donations from passionate South Africans like yourself to spread the message of hope and change,” said Mashaba.

The party previously received R3.73m from three donors, according to the Electoral Commission of South Africa (IEC).

Last month, the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) also took to social media to ask for donations to “finance the revolution”.

The party shared a recorded video of its leader Julius Malema asking for donations from “peace-loving South Africans and revolutionaries from the African continent and the diaspora”.

“Our organisation will be celebrating ten years of unbroken struggle, ten years of anti-corruption, ten years of fighting racism, ten years of being in the forefront of the land, ten years of making sure that the African people are represented without fear or favour, ten years of ensuring that black professionals are not looked down upon but rather are respected and treated as their counterparts.

“We need resources to finance this organisation. Withlout resources, this organisation will not succeed.

“It depends on genuine donations and contributions from peace-loving South Africans and revolutionaries from the African continent and the diaspora.

“We call upon all of you to make donations to the EFF because we must finance our own revolution; if we don’t finance our own revolution, counterrevolutionaries will hijack it,” said Malema.
