Zodwa has plunged into politics, joining Kenny Kunene’s Patriotic Alliance.

“I’m happy. This is my new home. The good thing is that I will have a voice. I thought thoroughly before I considered taking this road of politics as it is sometimes rough.

“I was convinced this is the only political party that is relevant in South Africa in this day and age. The party’s commitment to the upliftment of communities is what impressed me most.  Remember I’m a township girl and I spend a lot of time in the kasi. It breaks my heart to see the misery that people in kasi go through despite them voting in every election,” she said.
