Why you should vote for RISE Mzansi and not MK
MK divides rather than unites South Africans. It threatens violence when it doesn’t get its way. And its leaders are famous for their corruption. Only RISE can unite our country and be a party for all South Africans. RISE Mzansi has new leaders with experience, values and a plan. 

The Problem

MK divides, not unites

MK divides rather than unites. It only cares about representing some South Africans, rather than all of us. A MK government will be divisive and leave most South Africans behind.

 Jacob Zuma is corrupt

MK’s leaders are famous for their corruption. Jacob Zuma, the figurehead of MK, has a very long history of corruption, bribery and fraud, for which he is currently on trial. And it was under his presidency that South Africa fell under state capture. Zuma shows that the MK only care about getting power to enrich themselves.

 MK threaten violence

When they don’t get their way, MK threaten violence. Just recently, they threatened to unleash riots across the country if the IEC ruled against them. They are a danger to our democracy, and are willing to destroy our country in order to gain power. 

What A Better Future Looks Like

A thriving economy which creates jobs; safe communities free from crime; reliable public services- this is our vision of a prosperous, equitable South Africa under new leadership.

A Government that Represents Everyone

South Africa needs a government for the people, by the people. Most of all, it needs a government that represents all South Africans, not just certain groups.

A Government with Integrity, Accountability and Good Values

New leaders will work for the people, not themselves. South Africa needs a government for and by the people. A government free from corruption, fraud and greed. Only then can South Africa fulfil its potential.

A Government that Follows Law and Order

New leaders will head a government that provides order, calmness and stability. It needs a government that unifies rather than divides, that promotes peace rather than violence, and that provides order where there is chaos. 



Don’t just take our word for it

Hear from some of our concerned South Africans.
"We still have a lot work to do as a country and I would love to live in a society where the rights of every man, woman, and child are upheld and where everyone gets a chance to chase their dreams."
"Hospitals are struggling. People’s businesses are falling apart. The exchange rate is skyrocketing. Something needs to be done, and we are not angry enough. And we need to do more.”
"We’ve made many strides but still have a long way to go in fulfilling the hopes that live in our Freedom Charter. I hope that the next 25 years of freedom will see the upliftment of women and those who are underprivileged."
"You know, ANC, it is tough to defend you guys. We love and support you, but we just can’t anymore. But maybe they are correct. Let us go to the polls, and this time, we will vote with our heads and not our hearts because voting with our hearts causes many problems."
“I do not believe we are doing enough. Our government has not been able to keep the lights on for 16 years. Yes, it has been that long - 16 years of blatant incompetence, 16 years of treason for me. And they don't come across as being accountable at all. All they do is point fingers and blame people. People are literally dying because they cannot keep machines on that keep them alive.”
"While I can never take for granted the major steps that have been taken in order for us to have the opportunities available to us, the work is not complete. We are still facing a number of harsh realities: unemployment, poverty, femicide, depression, sanitation, education and substance abuse, all of which continue to steal from the potential of South Africa’s youth.”
