The Allied Movement for Change is contesting the provincial elections.

The party's leader, Ahmed Munzoor Shaik Emam, believes South Africa doesn't need any political party to have an absolute majority.

Shaik Emam thinks a co-governed state is better.

He says the majority system has not worked for the country and has made way for corruption.

Skaik Emam says if elected to power, his party would do away with the current tendering system.

"No politician or political party must ever be involved in procurement and supply chain processes; keep us completely out of it. We believe that the Allied Movement for Change - what it needs in this country is to co-govern. However, you must not lose your independence; you must be able to contribute effectively and hold other parties accountable." 

The African People First party will also be on the provincial ballot paper.

Its leader Muzi Hlengwa says victory is certain for his party. 

He says people are receiving them well and their numbers are impressive.

"The message that we are carrying matters more than the posters that you see on the road and more than the rallies that other parties are having. Each and every household must have an income. As a party, we are going to shut down all the tender systems that the current government is employing.

We are confident that majority of our people have faith in us, and come the 29th of May, they will vote for the APF into the government of KwaZulu-Natal."
