Herman Mashaba has launched The People's Dialogue, an endeavour aimed at fixing the countries problems.
The former mayor is adamant that it can't be 'politics as usual' in South Africa as the nation battles with power outages, unemployment and poverty.
Mashaba encouraged citizens to join the conversation and raise their concerns at the launch of the project:
"Today, I am launching The People's Dialogue, to begin an engagement with South Africans about forging a better future for our country. We need hope, we need to believe again.

Mashaba, who successfully held together a seven-party coalition for three years, says that the political system is broken in SA:
"Our political system is broken, but, South Africa is full of potential. We want to believe, we want hope for a better future & we, the people know what needs to be done to fix our country."
The former mayor insists that he has placed his faith in the citizens of the nation to pull the country out of its slump:
"I believe in South Africa & South Africans. I will not give up and neither must you. This week’s chaos shows that SA needs real solutions - not politics as usual."
Briefly.co.za reported that Mashaba had felt vindicated in his decision to leave the Democratic Alliance following an ANC mayor being elected in his stead.
