This promise comes shortly after two DA heavyweights joined Herman Mashaba's new party.
Briefly.co.za reported that in a statement, Mashaba announced Funzi Ngobeni and Paul Boughey have joined the efforts to bring around political change in SA:
"Johannesburg Regional Chairperson and Caucus Leader, Funzi Ngobeni, has opted to resign and join our efforts to build a new political alternative in SA.
"He will be leading our essential campaign to develop wall-to-wall structures on the ground in the communities, that will carry our offer to the front doors of South Africans."
Mashaba explained that Funzi had proved his worth during his time at the helm of Johannesburg as it's mayor:
"Funzi served as the MMC for Finance and Leader of Executive Business. He proved himself as a strong and skilled leader, committed to doing what was right for the people of Johannesburg."
In a cryptic video, Mashaba said more politicians will follow suit.
"Watch this space. You will see within the next days, weeks and months there will be more and more South Africans from all political formations and civil society joining this movement."
