Makhosi Khoza’s supporters claim ActionSA president, Herman Mashaba, misled the public when he said the party’s former KwaZulu-Natal provincial chairperson had resigned from her top position, saying she was removed.

Mashaba has claimed that Khoza wrote a letter to the party’s national leadership to say she was quitting her job. “The letter that Mashaba says was a resignation letter is in fact a grievance letter where Makhosi was protesting against the national leadership’s decision to force its councillors to contribute large sums of money to the organisation,” an ActionSA member who supports Khoza said.

Khoza, who is ActionSA’s councillor in the eThekwini Municipality, is currently embroiled in a dispute with their leadership over her decision to take up the Municipal Public Accounts Committee (Mpac) chairperson position. An overwhelming number of ANC councillors voted for Khoza to become the municipality’s Mpac chairperson.
