About Bridget Staff Masango

How did you become involved in politics and what drew you to your specific party? Having grown up in rural KZN, witnessing and experiencing challenges that were a direct result of the politics of the day, I developed a curious interest in making any contribution I could. I did not expect government to do everything for me and those around me, but instead chose to come up with solutions to the challenges. I did not see a need to be in active politics in the beginning but always helped my party during elections to ferry the elderly who wanted to go and vote but could not walk long distances to the voting stations. The principles of my party are what drew me to it: freedom, fairness and opportunity. More here.
