The party merged with Agang to contest the 2014 general election. After the problems in that party, it contested the 2016 municipal elections, aiming to rescue the Thulamela Local Municipality (where it finished seventh, winning one seat)[2], and govern with traditional leaders[3].

The party is socially conservative, is against same-sex marriage and in favour of the right to discipline children. It is against land expropriation without compensation, and wants to replace BEE with economic empowerment based on poverty rather than race. [4][5]

The party contested the 2019 general election, failing to win any seats.
