Gayton McKenzie is a former gangster, bank robber and covinct who turned business man and motivational speaker, president of the Patriotic Alliance. He came to the public eye in the early 2000s for exposing corruption by waders and inmates inside the prison whilst he was serving time.

It have gained wards in Port Elizabeth and recently in Johannesburg DA lost a ward to it during the by elections. He is promising people big things if they vote for him but like all parties some of those are not mandates of the elected mayor but for national government especially the migration laws.
"People cannot be travelling from their homes around 4am only to get back home at night. There are many houses that can be built instead of that stadium that is expensive to maintain. There are many golf courses close to the economic hub that can be turned into housing spaces,” he said.
McKenzie didn't mince his words on his stance against foreign nationals. He said, send all of home immediately and he will lock them up
He was born and raised in Heidedal, Bloemfontein. His mother is Sotho woman and his father is colored.
