After a radio interview during prime time  on AL ANSAR during the final   voter    registration weekend  listeners phoned in requesting that    the    AL JAMA-AH political Party  start a branch in the town.  After this show of support the President  of the Party Ganief Hendricks stated that this shows that the town is not a “sleepy hollow” but wide awake to get Muslims to take part in the political life of the country.

The Party gave an undertaking to start the branch and early indications are that a Council seat  for the Party is in the bag for  this District of KZN. The Party will despatch its KZN leader Muhammed Ally from nearby Umzinto to the town and surrounds. The Party President plans to take  a symbolic journey by train  to Pietermaritzurg like his grandpa did to show solidarity with the Ghandis when Mrs Ghandi was jailed nearby for defying the pass laws. This time to get more people  especially the youth interested in politics.

End the Occupation

Every year horselovers led by the Helderberg Horse Association in Maccassar march from the horse showgrounds to the Shrine of Sheikh Yusuf of Macassar  in a horse cavalcade of horse riders and horse carts.  The event happens during the Easter weekend when thousands of Muslims camp out at the Kramat at the Shrine to keep up a tradition of over 300 years.

Sheikh Yusuf launched the liberation struggle in South Africa and for this he was awarded the “Friends of Oliver Tambo”  medal in gold posthumously. He is now a South African hero.


Each year Muslims and freedom fighters took the journey with their horse and cart from Cape Town, Stellenbosch and Swellendam –  a  two to four week trip to Maccassar to listen to the Founder of Islam and later  to his his companions and their progeny on ways to liberate the country and practice Islam.

This year AL JAMA-AH was a sponsor at the horseshow and the President Ganief Hendricks  was invited to be part of the  horse cavalcade.

Ganief  was warmly welcomed by the Secretary of the Muslim Judicial Council as he entered the Kramat amid cheers from  thousands of campers. The MJC stated that South Africa will not be free as long as Palestine is occupied and that the march will take place  each year until Palestine is free.

These was a sense of excitement when he announced that the IEC approved the abbreviation of the Party.

He expressed his disappointment  that there was still insufficient interest to launch branches in the other six(6) provinces in spite of regular  visits to Kimberley and Kimberley. This made it difficult to put in place a representative National Executive Committee(NEC) and to hold an elective conference. The Party was largely a Cape based organization although it had voter support in all 9 provinces as seen in the political report. The  report covered the first 8 years of the Party and was a comprehensive 40 page document. It was now up to researchers to analyse the future of Muslim politics in South Africa. Copies were later given to Professor Muhammed Haron  and researcher Naeem Jeenah,


THE RALLY ended with a motion of confidence in the President who was given a mandate to run the 2016 LGE.
