Party abbreviation: Sancota

The party will be contesting elections for the first time on 8 May 2019.

It is one of the six small political parties from Mpumalanga that will be running for office.

The party was formed in February this year by businessman Themba Sgudla – an alleged former ally of deputy president, David Mabuza.

It’s running for seats in the National Assembly and provincial legislatures of the Free State, Gauteng, Limpopo and Mpumalanga.

Sancota believes that traditional leaders must take up their rightful positions and run government.

It is led by Chief Mantjolo Mnisi.

Sancota’s manifesto was not available at the time of writing.
