Baloyi spoke about the feeling of being a young mayor and all that is involved in being the face of Midvaal Local Municipality.

He said Helen Zille’s return to the DA was problematic for many black leaders.

He then joined ActionSA, before leaving to form his Xiluva party – a decision he does not regret.

He revealed that there were discussions between the ANC and ActionSA for a possible working relationship in municipalities including Johannesburg and Pretoria.

Baloyi said he remained focused on Xiulva, despite funding issues and “anti-progressive” forces.

He said he had been approached by several parties wanting to recruit him following his departure from ActionSA. Some of these parties were not born at the time but have since been launched.

Although he had similar views to the MK party, he was not in talks with any political party about a possible working relationship.
