ZA Right View was born from a frustration with the dominant socialist, left-leaning politics in South Africa. There is a serious need for a voice and contributions from the centre-to-right. South Africans are in actual fact considerably conservative in many aspects, but the current political environment does not allow conservatives and the conservative viewpoint to be heard. ZA Right View wishes to address this problem by stirring up the conservative in so many South Africans, to create meaningful input and conversation on the state of the nation, and how to change it.

“I hate politics, but I love the ability to make an impact on a national and international scale. Politics is a necessary evil in the times we live in, a vehicle for change that you can choose to ignore, observe, or drive. What will your choice be?”
