Makhosi Khoza: ‘Make me president of Gap Fixers SA’

By Celani Sikhakhane

The former chairperson of ActionSA in KwaZulu-Natal, Dr Makhosi Khoza, has been accused of trying to bully the leaders of the newly formed political party Gap Fixers SA into appointing her as their party leader. 

They also claim that she wanted to be the face of the new party ahead of the upcoming general elections.

The claims were made by the president of Gap Fixers SA, Themba Buthelezi, after Khoza joined the Abantu Batho Congress (ABC) and was introduced as its deputy president. 

“We wanted to work with her considering her experience in politics — but her demands were crazy,” said Buthelezi.

He said she told them if they agreed to work with her they should appoint her as the face of the party in the elections. Initially, he said, she demanded to be the deputy president before insisting on being made president. 

“We said we had a deputy president but we could create a second deputy president position for her,” said Buthelezi. “Later she came back and demanded to be president.”

Buthelezi said that is why they rejected her demand. They subsequently saw her at an ABC media briefing where she was introduced as its deputy president. 

Khoza told Scrolla.Africa that Gap Fixers SA was lying because she only negotiated with them while weighing up different options.

“This is nonsense. I only had a discussion with them about joining their party. While I was still talking to them I also had negotiations with uMkhonto Wesizwe and ABC,” she said. 

“I then decided to join ABC because it resonates with my heritage. It was named after the newspaper that was established by the late president of the ANC, Dr Pixley ka isaka Seme.”

Khoza claims she never demanded anything from Gap Fixers SA because it was a new party and “no one knows what gap they are trying to fix”.
