RISE People's Bulletin - Attacks Against RISE Mzansi Mean We Are Making A Mark

RISE Mzansi has recently faced increased attacks from various political parties, signaling our growing impact and influence. Fikile Mbalula and Julius Malema have both inadvertently boosted our visibility with their criticisms. The Democratic Alliance, led by John Steenhuisen, has launched a concerted campaign against us in KwaZulu-Natal, undermining our fundraising and spreading misinformation, despite our commitment to social democratic principles and grassroots democracy.

These attacks reflect their fear of losing ground to a fresh political alternative that resonates with diverse, young voters disillusioned by traditional party politics. Despite their efforts, we remain steadfast in our mission. For a comprehensive look at our ongoing efforts, download the complete media statement release above.
