ActionSA President Herman Mashaba says the North West needs urgent intervention because it is on the brink of collapse.
He was speaking during the launch of ActionSA’s “#letsfixnorthwest” campaign in Mahikeng.
Mashaba says revitalising the province’s economy and developing infrastructure are his party’s priorities.
“The failures that we have experienced in the past 27 years or 28 years, we need to rebuild and rebuild as a matter of urgency. We look at all these factories in Mogwase and other places all over the former Bophuthatswana, we need those factories so that our people can find employment opportunities.
The SMMEs are today run by foreign nationals who we don’t know how they came into our country, these opportunities must be given to our people so that we can have our pride back.”
ActionSA supporters say they believe the party can bring change to the province.
“Let it be that we put our South African first by making sure that we secure, we safeguard the microeconomic space that is the change I am anticipating to see. I am just waiting to get proper infrastructure, our main problems are water and roads.”
“He is the man of integrity that’s what makes me to follow him because I have worked for him and I worked with him. He is the man of integrity.”
