Controversial KwaZulu-Natal politician Ziba Jiyane says he is back with a vengeance.

Jiyane has vowed to make a dramatic comeback on the political landscape.

Jiyane, once tipped to take over from IFP leader Mangosuthu Buthelezi while still an IFP member, unveiled the vision of his new South African Democratic Convention (Sadeco).

Jiyane left politics temporarily after his leadership and legal battles with currentNational Democratic Convention president Hawu Mbatha.

But for Jiyane, "all that is history" and he "bears no anger" towards his previous political opponents.

He said his new role with Sadeco would change South African politics for good.

"The reason we have been so quiet is that we have been setting up structures across the province," he said.

This low key mobilisation has reportedly allowed the party to scoop support from both the IFP and ANC.

He said Sadeco would focus on the implementation of systematic "moral and political values".

"Sadeco will shape the political spectrum of this country through its vision to fear God first. We are not like other smaller parties that have no vision at all.

"God should be the foundation on which to raise our children to build a better society."
