African Congress for Transformation (ACT)

Kwezi Toko, the now-former National Coordinator and Leader of the African Congress for Transformation (ACT), has confirmed his continued affiliation with the ACT while simultaneously announcing his intention to vote for the MK Party in the upcoming national elections. Toko’s declaration came through a leaked letter to the media.

In an attempt to reach out to Toko for further comments, it was learnt that he opted not to engage in an interview but was keen to clarify his stance through an email to Central News, stating, “I have not joined uMkhonto Wesizwe. Kindly urgently correct this erroneous misinformation. The letter clearly states that I’m voting for uMkhonto Wesizwe. Nowhere in the letter does it reference that I have joined any party.”

Toko’s extensive letter not only illuminated his decision but also shed light on a series of systemic challenges within the ACT that propelled his decision. Among the issues, Toko cited were centralization of power, avoidance of critical meetings, financial mismanagement, and resistance to professionalism, which, in his view, culminated in a compromised organisational integrity and effectiveness.

“A REFLECTIVE JOURNEY TOWARD ACT’S FUTURE,” Toko commenced, offering an intimate glimpse into the trials and tribulations faced by the party. From proud beginnings to confronting organisational challenges, Toko’s narrative is a candid introspection into the tribulations that tested ACT’s resilience.

In his in-depth dissection, Toko expressed grave concerns over the centralized decision-making process, particularly accentuating the absence of a Treasurer General (TG) with the requisite capacity to manage finances effectively—a scenario that has led to dire financial constraints for the party.

“The organisation is currently facing financial constraints, with the limited funds primarily allocated towards TG-related expenses,” Toko revealed, underlining a critical bottleneck in the party’s operations. Furthermore, he highlighted a resistance to the professionalization of the party, encapsulating a struggle to establish a national head office, which significantly impeded the organisational workflow.

The outgoing leader voiced his frustration over the stagnation in capacitating the organisation with skilled personnel and the challenges posed by centralisation versus decentralisation debates, particularly during pivotal IEC processes.

“These challenges have contributed to a situation where our organisation lacks a clear national structure and faces impending court cases due to inadequate preparations for elections,”

Despite these challenges, Toko reaffirms his commitment to the ideals and goals of ACT, expressing a desire for the organization to steer towards success. However, he decisively states, “I have decided to shift my support and participation. I will be voting for uMkhonto Wesizwe in the upcoming NPE elections.” This decision, as he believes, aligns with his values and aspirations for the future of the country.

Toko’s letter concludes with an extension of his best wishes to ACT for the upcoming elections and outlines contacts for transitional support in administrative, financial, and electoral matters within the party.
