About MCF

Makana Citizens Front is a civic movement founded on 16 June 2021, in the wake of angry protests against lack of service delivery.

In an extraordinary first, in a matter of a few months, were were able to win 18.1% in the 1 November 2021 municipal elections, scoring the second-highest vote and pushing the ANC to a bare majority of 1 seat.

Since then, we have been working hard to resolve long-standing problems like failure to deliver basic services. We have uncovered more than R600-million in fruitless and wasteful spending on water infrastructure and have brought the Human Rights Commission to Makhanda, as well as demanding the intervention of the national Minister of Water and Sanitation.
