RISE Mzansi is delighted to announce the addition of human rights and social activist, Mark Heywood, to its National Campaign Team. Heywood has generously volunteered his time to support the organization in preparation for the 29 May 2024 National and Provincial Elections and beyond. His involvement will focus on refining RISE Mzansi's policy offerings, expanding the movement, and collaborating with civil society groups nationwide.

In addition to Heywood, six highly skilled individuals have joined the National Campaign Team, bolstering capabilities in marketing, communication, community organizing, political programs, and research. With just nine weeks until South Africans head to the polls at over 23,000 voting stations, this enhanced team is crucial in expanding RISE Mzansi's reach through community meetings, door-to-door campaigns, and media engagement.

RISE Mzansi welcomes all patriots who share its values of freedom, equality, integrity, solidarity, and justice to join in its mission of promoting dignity and happiness in families and communities across South Africa. We look forward to collaborating with Mark Heywood and his team to make a meaningful impact.
