"Action SA may really get my vote in these upcoming elections. They may get it! In their website they say they want to improve the “equality of opportunity, not equality of outcome.” Sensible stuff! And I like Herman Mashaba; great inspirational family man with the right vision."
"Action SA isn’t formed on any political ideology, I mean its leader is dubbed the “accidental mayor”. Like COPE, it won’t cope in this political fertile ground."
"S.A is a tragedy that should be used as an example to other nations. This is what happens when incompetent and corrupt individuals are elected into power. A book should be written about S.A, we've surpassed Animal farm."
