The party describes itself as "a modern Pan Afrikan Social democratic party that subscribes to the notion of a fair and just political order based on Effective Citizen Participatory Democracy", and aims to reconnect the community with the constitution and improve the quality of state services.[1]

Mokoena was acquitted of theft and money-laundering charges in 2011, and reportedly heads Bloemfontein Correctional Contracts, a company running Mangaung prison, a facility accused of being “marred by irregularities and allegations of abuse and torture”.[2]

The party contested the 2019 general election, failing to win a seat.
