People trust gangs more than politicians - Kunene

Communities trust gang leaders more than politicians, Patriotic Alliance co-founder Kenny Kunene has said.

"Politicians have brought that on themselves and now want to blame the gangsters," Kunene wrote in an opinion piece in the Sunday Independent.

He claimed this was the reason other political parties courted gang leaders during elections.

"The PA doesn't quietly, tacitly support gangsterism - as the other parties do," he was quoted as saying.

He also reportedly said that neither he nor his co-founder and fellow jail mate Gayton McKenzie wanted to go to Parliament.

"Neither Gayton nor I intend to go to Parliament, though the PA will win a substantial number of seats next year".

The PA registered with the Independent Electoral Commission in November.
