With two months to go to the national general elections, the mood continues to intensify, with a new political party recently launched in Mpumalanga. The South African National Congress of Traditional Authority (SANCOTA) was recently launched in Hazyview.
The party recently launched its party manifesto at the Thulamahashe stadium on the evening of Friday, the 1st of March until Saturday morning. “The party has been formed by traditional leaders of the province on the 22nd of February,” Happy Msoma, the party’s national chairperson told Bushbuckridge News.
“The purpose of the party is to take the land back to the rightful owners, the traditional leaders. We cannot allow the state to take the land back to the government because when we refer back to the history of our country, when the white people took the land, they didn’t take the land from the ANC government, they took it from the traditional leaders, but today the politicians are standing firm to speak about the land as if it’s theirs, even when we can refer to the freedom charter, it states correctly that the land shall be returned back to its rightful owners,” Msoma added.
