Rise Mzansi, a political party launched in April, has defended its use of the slogan “2024 is our 1994”. The party’s spokesperson, Tebogo Moalusi, stated that the upcoming elections present an opportunity for South Africa to choose a new path. The party aims to free the country “from the clutches of a political establishment that no longer has solutions or plans for the country and its 60-million residents”.

The Significance of ‘2024 is our 1994’ Slogan

Rise Mzansi leader Songezo Zibi explained that the slogan signifies a chance to reset and reshape South Africa, much like in 1994. He believes that if people are unhappy with the current state of affairs, they have an opportunity to ensure a new deal. The slogan has gained popularity and is being used by other political parties such as the EFF to attract votes.

The Party’s Plans and Upcoming Events

Despite other parties using their slogan, Zibi stated that they will not present their politics in the same manner. Moalusi added that the phrase signifies a “polycrisis, agitation and the importance” of this opportunity for the country to say “enough is enough”. He believes that 2024 is an opportunity to recontract, reset and set South Africa on a new path.

This will include individuals and representatives of organizations. At the end of this convention, they will have a declaration that will inform their political program for the next generation. A month after the convention, they will publish ‘the people’s manifesto’, which will form the basis of the people’s plan for change that will be published in February 2024.
