Speaking on Newzroom Afrika, Mashaba admitted that he once tried to get Baloyi on his team at ActionSA.
“He is someone I admire. Someone I tried, when we launched ActionSA, to bring into our fold. I could not succeed at the time, but this presents an opportunity for us to engage him, and I hope we are successful this time around.”
While DA federal council chair Helen Zille claimed Baloyi was retiring from politics at large, he denied this.
Mashaba said he did not know whether Baloyi would remain in politics, but he would invite him over for “tea” to discuss his future.
