Ahead of the 7 May National Elections you would do well to acquaint yourself with the Political Parties registered on the National level for the elections.
Today we introduce you to: Security Workers Political Party – SWPP
IEC Status: Registered
Contact Person: Isaac Mmotsa
Telephone: 079 8459398
Postal Address: 11811 Extension 6, Mamelodi East, Pretoria, 0122
Formed by a group of Tshwane security guards in June 2013.
“This party was formed on a dumping site where children play and drains are leaking,” said the party’s deputy president, Phillip Mmela.
The Security Workers Political Party will be fighting for people who are poverty stricken and are struggling – people, it says, who have been forgotten by the ruling party.
SWPP’s obvious focus will be on the security industry.
The party said workers in the sector weren’t earning enough and that the government and unions had done very little to change that.
It would fight for a living wage and the benefits they deserved.
“We want all security officers to have a Grade C, to be earning R9 500. We want all security officers to be retrained at SAPS and work hand in hand with metro and SAPS to defeat crime,” said party representative Isaac Motsa.
Security will not be their only focus, but just one of their many strategic plans.
SWPP also aims to maintain and uplift the agricultural economy by ensuring farmers and farmworkers have the necessary tools and that there is sufficient safety to continue agricultural production.
