A new political party has been born in South Africa.

The African Federal Convention, AFCO, was launched in Johannesburg on Wednesday by leader Babayi Vusi Mathe. Mathe says he’s decided to form this party after leaving the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) as its former Head of Intelligence in KwaZulu-Natal.

Mathe claims that the EFF has lost touch with the masses and that a new political home is needed.
