Khulu Skenjana unveils political party of choice

After countless cries for service delivery, not to mention nudges from stars like Bonang Matheba to register to vote, not everyone is clear on which political party deserves their checkmark despite the consensus of voting the ruling party out.

However, it seems the Hangman actor, Manqoba "Khulu" Skenjana is clear on where his loyalties lie after revealing his support for the uMkhonto weSizwe Party led by former ANC president, Jacob Zuma.

Not only that, but as an artist, Skenjana has been able to align his values and principles with the MK Party and is convinced that with the party's leadership, artists will get the support they've so much needed in their careers.

He joins fellow MK Party member, Zulu Boy, who recently announced his seat in the party's creative council.

Speaking to Briefly News, the actor divulged how the event panned out:

"I was anxious, not knowing what to expect as it was uncharted grounds and a foreign experience for me, and I am so grateful that everything went exceptionally well. In a nutshell, I’ll say this: the winds of positive, true and meaningful change for the Bantu people are blowing."

Khulu went on to speak about his involvement in politics:

"With the exception of having been paid once before by the ANC and once by the EFF to be present at one of their rallies, this is the first time I am voluntarily and actively involved in politics."

"Gazati" touched on his assumptions on why public figures tend to shy away from supporting the MK Party despite their shared values:

"When it comes to the MK Party, there seems to be a fear of being blackballed or stigmatised for being associated with uMkhonto weSizwe.

"I suspect that privately, many creatives or artists support what the MK stands for, but they are crippled by the fear that this modern-day society has instilled in the majority of the people; speaking truth to power."

Taking to his Instagram page, Skenjana invited followers to the party's address to the cultural and creative industry, The Artist Round Table:

"Aren't you tired of being exploited? Poverty? Hunger? Your gross annual income is peanuts compared to the large amounts of money your exploiters make. They're enjoying a soft life with your blood, sweat, and tears."
