It is my understanding that there is no small party. Every party has the same capacity to take any amount of members - it's just the people who must decide who they are going to vote for.

Malcolm Taylor, Leader - Khoi San Kingdom Party of RSA

Taylor says the party was established in 2017 and has until recently been operating outside of the City of Cape Town. It then began operating from a base in Atlantis and went on to organising nationally.

Now the party is hoping to grow.

As the original leadership undertakes growth they approached Taylor from the Forum for Change who is now acting as co-leader of the party in the run-up to local government elections, he explains.

Most people will find if they made a point of studying their background that we find we have that blood running through our veins of the indigenous, the first peoples of South Africa.

He says the aim of the party is to bring South Africans back to the first principles and basic understanding in society.

Everyone is running on the issue of service delivery...but for us, those are basic secondary things and administrative duties of a government. Governments are either good at it or bad at it.

Malcolm Taylor, Leader - Khoi San Kingdom Party of RSA

Our focus is on basics. We want to get back to a principled position, We want to get back to respect, to a joint understanding, to values, an understanding of where you come from.

Malcolm Taylor, Leader - Khoi San Kingdom Party of RSA

If you get your foundation stones right, then obviously the rest will fall into place - and we believe that is what the government has got wrong. The foundation stone is missing so you have a whole lot of people running down the road not knowing where they come from anymore and not knowing where they're going.
