In 2016, general secretary Andile Hlatshwayo laid charges of high treason against the Economic Freedom Fighters Julius Malema.[1]

Also in 2016, the party attempted to organise a strike in the Alfred Duma Local Municipality, aiming to shut all 36 wards in the municipality. The strike was called off after the NPA failed to meet the legal requirements.[2]

The party contested the 2019 general election, failing to win any seats, and receiving the fewest votes of all 48 parties contesting nationally.
