The Pan Africanist Congress of Azania (PAC) says it is confident that despite its contentious leadership battles, the people of South Africa will vote the party into power.

The party’s leadership woes were temporarily put on ice earlier this month when two warring factions elected Narius Moloto as the man to lead them to the general elections.

PAC leader in the Northern Cape Lentikile Matthews says if elected, the party’s immediate goal will be to expropriate land.

Matthews was speaking at a door-to-door campaign in Campbell, near Kimberley, Northern Cape.

“The PAC will first bring the land above everything because everything will spring from the land. Without land we cannot have houses. Without land we cannot have jobs so the land is the pinnacle, the land is the centre stage in as far as the being of the African people is concerned.”

The Pan Africanist Congress of Azania has thrown its weight behind the expropriation of land. It says land will be returned to its rightful owners if elected into power.
