Makhosi Khoza has reportedly returned to her former party, African Democratic Change (ADeC).

The former ANC MP left ADec last year due to infighting and joined the Organisation Undoing Tax Abuse.

With the May elections just weeks away, it seems Khoza has returned to politics.

Khoza had previously said she was retiring from politics. Additionally, when she announced her resignation from OUTA, she had said she would be focusing on research and other kinds of activism.

She added that OUTA was not a platform from which she could make progress on issues that she felt strongly about, such as fighting government corruption.

Khoza described her departure from ADeC last year as a "strategic retreat", saying that the two figures within the party who had wanted her out, Lufuno Gogoro and Mpho Ramakatsa, were no longer ADeC members. 

The IEC has since confirmed that ADeC is registered and will contest the upcoming elections, but it remains to be seen whether it will win any seats in Parliament.

Khoza said that, if elected, she would take action against "indifference" of the ruling party and the corruption that plagues the government sector.
