RISE Mzansi People’s Bulletin

Remarks by
RISE Mzansi National Leader, Songezo Zibi
June 5, 2024

This is only the beginning for RISE Mzansi – together, we can build a formidable movement and political party. Reflecting on our journey since 19 April last year, we have gone from non-existence to being represented in Parliament and the Gauteng Provincial Legislature. This achievement is one we should not take for granted. I am honored to work with all of you on our mission to build a safe, prosperous, equal, and united South Africa within one generation. Since our launch, RISE Mzansi has established itself as a serious, optimistic, inclusive, and solutions-focused national political brand. Our representation in the National Assembly and Gauteng Provincial Legislature is a testament to our hard work and dedication.

With this strong foundation, we must now build our political movement across all nine provinces, in every community, and every ward. Our National Chairperson, Vuyiswa Ramokgopa, along with the National Leadership Collective, will outline the road ahead, including the creation of powerful structures and programs at all levels. This journey is not about a single election but realizing a new national vision. We encourage supporters to become members, expand our donor base, and make monthly donations to sustain our work. To fulfill our promise of accountability, we will host Citizens’ Assemblies to gather mandates from our supporters. Let’s spread the word about RISE Mzansi and continue building the country we all deserve.
