Leader of movement One South Africa for All Mmusi Maimane says political parties have failed South Africa.
Maimane is in Botshabelo, Free State, as part of his nationwide tour to take the message of a new movement called. He says the movement will in the long run force changes in the country.
Maimane expresses the view that there are too many political parties in the country that are not bringing any changes to the lives of the people.
“What we don’t need is to keep increasing the ballot list of South Africans. We can get to 50 parties that does not help anybody. I keep telling people that if the ANC want to keep being in power forever, it will start more and more parties. We need a movement, therefore my invitation to many others is that let’s build a movement to build one South Africa. When we do that like the UDF it was able to bring change in South Africa by working across different political formations, different NGOs that what we are trying to build,”says Maimane.
