The Gabola Church United National Front Party recently officially made their promises to constituents ahead of the upcoming election, in their strongly-worded manifesto.

A political drive event in Evaton drew out church and party members; with beer and expensive bottles of liquor on display.

According to the Daily Sun, Pope Tsietsi Makiti, leader of the party, promised to bring about real change:

“The Constitution is not suitable for our country. If we win the majority, we will make amendments and bring about proper change,”

A major point of the manifesto was the reintroduction of the death penalty, something that seems to have picked up momentum following other political parties also campaigning for its return.

Briefly.co.za reported earlier that the IFP's Chief Whip, Narend Singh, had written to Parliament in the hopes that the serious punishment would be considered for South Africa.

Prominent issues like high crime rates, corruption and state capture would be tackled to bring about the change Makiti spoke of.

The party wishes to improve security at schools in South Africa, with the Pope saying they would protect them as if they were prisons.
