Why you should vote RISE Mzansi and not the DA
The DA will never be able to beat the ANC. It is even now contemplating going into coalition with the ANC. Rise Mzansi actually has the leaders with the experience that can attract votes from the ANC and build a true bloc of opposition capable of winning power.

The Problem

The DA will never have the mandate to govern South Africa

The DA is too deeply affiliated with the Western Cape and is not seen as a party for all South Africans. It will never have the mandate to govern the whole country- meaning that it will never be able to bring about the change it promises, and that South Africa needs.

The DA divides, not unites

DA divides rather than unites. It only focuses on representing some South Africans, rather than all of us. A DA government will be divisive and govern in the interest of the few rather than the many. Its track record in the Western Cape is evidence of that.

The DA is old and tired

The DA is an old, tired party with old, tired leaders. It represents a tired and increasingly illegitimate status quo. South Africans are losing faith in their democracy: Only 47% of registered voters participated in the 2021 local government elections. South Africa needs a shot in the arm from fresh new leaders who are actually capable of bringing about the change South Africa needs.

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 with the Mandate to Govern

New leaders will head a reformist government with a true mandate to govern. Positive reforms can only come from a party with the ability to attain and retain power.

 A Government that Represents Everyone

A better future looks like a government for the people, by the people. Most of all, it looks like a government that represents all South Africans, not just certain groups.

A Fresh, New Government with New Leaders

New leaders will head a fresh, new government that can break from the past and from the apathy of the people. A party that can revitalise our politics and usher in a new political era full of hope and substantive reform. 



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.”
