ActionSA leadership’s decision to demote the KwaZulu-Natal provincial chairperson, Makhosi Khoza, is threatening to collapse the organisation in the province.

Three weeks ago, ActionSA president Herman Mashaba announced the party’s decision to remove Khoza — who is the former Msunduzi Municipality deputy mayor — as its provincial chairperson. It later emerged that the ActionSA national leadership lost confidence in Khoza after ANC councillors in the eThekwini Municipality had voted for her to become the council’s municipal public accounts committee (Mpac) chairperson shortly after the November municipal elections.

Yesterday Micheal Beuamont, ActionSA’s National chairperson, announced that Musa Kubheka has been appointed as the interim provincial chairperson.
