Ahead of the 8 May National Elections you would do well to acquaint yourself with the Political Parties registered on the National level for the elections.
Today we introduce you to: National People’s Front – NAPF
The NAPF has swopped around the initials of rival party the National Freedom Party (NFP) in what some might suspect is a sneaky attempt to win some of its rival’s votes. After all, party leader Bheki Gumbi founded the NAPF after leaving the NFP – where he served as national deputy chairperson – in 2018. They are running on a platform of stronger border controls and “first priority” for South Africans over foreign nationals, and have promised to “fast forward” land expropriation if voted into power. The party’s Twitter account announced in March 2019: “Africa will unite the day we abolish the Roman laws”.
The National People’s Front (NAPF) is a South African political party formed in 2018 by Bheki Gumbi, former national deputy chairperson of the National Freedom Party.
The party is campaigning on a platform of fast-forwarding land expropriation, strong borders, priority for South Africans over foreign nationals, and on abolishing “Roman laws”.
NAPF is founded on the basic principles of UBUNTU.
Ubuntu is the African humaneness that is found deep within each African person.
It defines the person’s conscience towards the self, others, the community and society and highly bordering on integrity, compassion and empathy drawing from the innermost love for the next person and relating to them fellow brothers from another father, another mother.
Ubuntu is a core principle of raising families and a guiding principle for all of human interactions in our African culture. We believe in an African shared future of prosperity and coexistence to the betterment of all. NAPF believes in a thriving multiparty democracy and Pan-Africanism which is guided by the spirit of Ubuntu-Botho.
