What is the political party of SBU Mpisane?

Aside from his vast business portfolio, Sbu ventured into politics with his party, Gap Fixers of South Africa (GFSA). The Durban tycoon was, in the past, known to be a staunch supporter of the ANC, making generous contributions to the ruling party's coffers.

Speaking to ZiMoja, Sbu said former president Jacob Zuma's incarceration in July 2021 at the Escourt Correctional Facility in Kwa Zulu-Natal motivated his decision to enter politics.

What hurt me the most was to witness someone who fought for our freedom having his fingerprints taken in prison and jailed after that. I was hurting because Zuma was jailed after he didn't even face a fair trial.

His political party, with the tagline A true catalyst for change, was given the green light by the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) to participate in the 2024 election. He said the party's main objective is to fix things in the country and ensure that ordinary citizens can also benefit from national resources.
