ActionSA leader Herman Mashaba has announced his resignation as a councillor in the City of Johannesburg.

In a statement via his political party on Monday, Mashaba said he sent a letter to Speaker Vasco da Gama on Sunday and that his resignation would be effective as of 28 February.

Mashaba said following the establishment of the coalition governments in Gauteng after the 2021 local government elections, he took the approach overseeing the first few months with a view to getting ActionSA set in the council.

“I am very pleased to see the calibre of individuals that we have put forward as Councillors, Members of the Mayoral Committee (MMCs) and Section 79 Committee Chairpersons.

Now that ActionSA’s caucus is settled and our MMCs are actively pursuing programmes of service delivery in Johannesburg, it is time for me to step back and allow someone else the opportunity to gain this critical local government experience.” 

Mashaba said  he consulted my caucus and the Senate of ActionSA and there is agreement that his  time must be spent leading the campaign to grow ActionSA into all 9 provinces and to mount the challenge to the African National Congress (ANC) in 2024.
