Outspoken former African National Congress (ANC) MP Makhosi Khoza says her newly formed political party plans to win elections based on integrity and honest leadership.
Khoza launched the African Democratic Change (ADC) in Braamfontein on Friday.
The organisation is currently holding a founder’s conference aimed at outlining a strategy to contest the upcoming 2019 general elections.
The new party is born out of a merger with civil society organisations and members from other political parties.
Khoza has described her new party as a new force of change that will work to solve problems faced by South Africans, especially the poor.
Khoza says honest leadership is one the most important factors that will sustain the party.
“Ours is not about numbers. Yes, we want to win the elections, but we want to with the elections on a moral and ethical platform.”
Khoza resigned from the ANC and Parliament earlier this year after being targeted for speaking out against corruption within the governing party.
