National Freedom Party(NFP) supporters are gathered at KwaMbonambi Town hall near Richards Bay on the KwaZulu-Natal north coast.

The party is on a campaign trail ahead of the May 8 general elections.

The party is trying to garner support after it lost its membership after failing to participate in the 2016 local government elections.

Some of its members have gone back to the IFP. The party’s Acting National chairperson Bekithemba Dlamini is expected to address the mini rally.

Party supporters are singing religious and revolutionary songs. The splinter party from IFP was founded in 2011.
