NGO Likely to Back a Political Party

Abahlali baseMjondolo is considering backing a political party for the first time since 2006, but their clout comes at a price

The political Abahlali baseMjondolo is considering backing a political party for the first time since 2006, but their clout comes at a price.

For the first time since 2006, the shack dwellers movement, Abahlali baseMjondolo, is not staging a ‘no land, no house, no vote’ campaign as it has done for several editions of UnFreedom Day – an unofficial South African holiday – that it commemorates each year on 28 April 2014.

A few days before this year's event at the Siyanda informal settlement in KwaMashu, Durban, the organisation launched a talk shop that invited political parties to give presentations on why they should get Abahlali's vote instead.
