Kenny Kunene Makes a Return to the Political Arena with his Own Party: Patriotic Alliance

Kenny KuneneJust three months after leaving Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF), Kenny Kunene has registered his own political party called Patriotic Alliance. It is unclear when the party was registered. However, reports about its registration first surfaced on Wednesday afternoon.

According to the political party list on the IEC website, Patriotic Alliance is one of the 129 parties that are registered at national level and the name of the person who registered it is Thapelo Kenny Kunene.

There is another IEC-registered party from Umthatha which has a comparable name, the Patriotic Movement of South Africa (PAMSA). Perhaps this will cause confusion among some voters.

The Sushi King left EFF in August this year, citing his popularity as the reason for his leaving. He believed that his presence made some members of the EFF uncomfortable. It was suspected that there was bad blood between him and EFF leaders. There were rumours that he was pressured to leave the party because of his notoriety. However, EFF spokesperson Mbuyiseni Ndlozi said Kunene left the party on good terms. Clearly, he was already in the process of forming his own party because reports indicate that the consultative processes for the formation of Patriotic Alliance began four months ago.

The Citizen reported that the party will be launched officially on Saturday in Paarl, Cape Town.

Earlier this year, Kenny indicated that he had intentions to join the adult entertainment industry, an idea that his business partner and friend Gayton McKenzie was against. After this, they decided to go separate ways. However, it seems like Kenny changed his mind and they are back together. McKenzie is expected to be part of the launch of Patriotic Alliance and address the media at a press conference that will be held after the party’s first policy conference.
