Kenny Kunene registers Patriotic Alliance party with IEC

download (1)A new political party reportedly started by businessman Kenny Kunene has been registered with the IEC.

The Patriotic Alliance’s details were available on the Independent Electoral Commission’s website on Wednesday.

The contact person was Thapelo Kenny Kunene. The Citizen newspaper reported that Kunene wanted to start hisown party, the Patriotic Alliance.

It would be officially launched in Cape Town at the weekend, according to the paper.

“We will tell everything on Saturday at a media briefing. We want everyone at the same time. We don’t want to do separate interviews,” Kunene told the Citizen when asked for comment.

‘Political butterfly’
Kunene, a political butterfly, has gone from being an ANC member, to head of campaigns, mobilisation, and special projects for Julius Malema’s Economic Freedom Fighters, to starting his own party.

In August, the EFF announced that Kunene had resigned from the party.

Spokesperson Mbuyiseni Ndlozi said at the time that Kunene had not left the party but had asked to be “relieved of his leadership responsibilities”.

In July, Kunene said he was going into politics full-time as a member of the EFF.

Before joining the EFF he wrote an open letter to President Jacob Zuma criticising his leadership. – Sapa
