Political analyst, Professor Sam Koma, says it remains to be seen if Magashule will enjoy national or regional success, with the Free State being his stronghold.
Koma says this venture makes him think of other former ANC leaders who were expelled and later formed their won parties, like UDM leader Bantu Holomisa and EFF president, Julius Malema.
