Action SA has launched a Student Chapter to reach out to communities and students. A recent membership drive was conducted to encourage students at Tshwane University of Technology Ga-Rankuwa Campus to join the party.
Founded as part of ActionSA’s student movement, Student Chapters mobilize students at higher education institutions to join the movement.
- Ga-Rankuwa Student Chapter held a membership drive
- Membership drive aims to grow the structure
- The Student Chapters took over Mashaba Square
- The green-shirted activists also secured votes for both the SRC and the national elections
As a newly formed political party, the student membership drive aims to grow the structure, recruit members, and secure the upcoming election for the student representative council.
The Chapter’s senior leader, Rodney Maluleke, spearheaded the drive. He was pleased with the number of green and white students attending the drive and enquiring about ActionSA.
“Today, we are pursuing the structure’s value to make it relevant and vibrant,” Maluleke explained.
As part of his campaign, the Student Chapters took over Mashaba Square, also known as “Social Circle,” recruiting young people and collecting complaints from them.
“Students face challenges such as delayed NSFAS appeals, previous NSFAS bad debts, and the lack of access to lectures.
“So far we have registered 25 members, 6 want to be volunteers and serve the structure’s mandate,” said Maluleke.
“We are targeting at least 50 students for the day.” The green-shirted activists also secured votes for both the SRC and the national elections,” explained Maluleke.
The SRC elections are expected to take place in September or October.
