Member Tonic Manchidi says the Land Party is advocating military schools for at-risk young people.

With the 8 May elections fast approaching, other political parties promise South Africans alternative voices.

Speaking to 702's Bongani Bingwa, Land Party member Tonic Manchidi says the organisation will call a referendum to let South Africans decide what they want to do with the land.

We are going to call for a national referendum and South Africans will have a say. If the people say to us that we need to expropriate without compensation, we will identify land and we will do that.

Tonic Manchidi, Member - Land Party

He adds that the land issue is complex and he doesn't understand why the government doesn't give South Africans a referendum.

Manchidi says his party advocates for problematic young people to be taken to military schools to curb the scourge of violence and drug use.

There are no jobs in South Africa and these military schools will instil discipline, and it will do away with the current problem of drugs.
