The Minority Front is a political party in South Africa. Though the party represents all minorities of South Africa, its support comes mainly from South Africa's Indian community. Its largest base of political strength is in the province of KwaZulu-Natal, especially the city of Durban which is the cultural and demographic centre of South Africa's Indian community. It was led by the charismatic Amichand Rajbansi until his death in December 2011.
After his death, Rajbansi's widow, Shameen Thakur-Rajbansi, was appointed as leader in January 2012. A leadership and family battle erupted when an attempt was made to replace Thakur-Rajbansi as leader, with Amichand Rajbansi's son, Vimal, and first wife, Asha Devi Rajbansi, asking her to step down, and a breakaway conference (not recognized by the IEC) elected Roy Bhoola, who Thakur-Rajbansi had attempted to remove from public office., Thakur-Rajbansi was declared the undisputed leader in December 2013 after parties settled their disputes in a confidential agreement
