The IFP has confirmed that the ANC is
transporting people from other wards around Mkhanyakude,
Northern KwaZulu Natal to register for a by-election in Ward 04
in Jozini, scheduled for May 22.
IFP Women Brigade Chairperson, Mrs Thembeni
KaMaDlopha-Mthethwa said, "The Jozini Municipal Mayor,
Ndodephethe Mthethwa is one of the ANC members who are
transporting these people. He is using his mayoral vehicle to
transport people to the registration venues and does whatever he
wants at these venues. He threatens people by saying if they
don't vote for the ANC they will not get basic services and they
will not be offered job opportunities.
We were shocked to see neighbours, who are
personally known to us from other wards, taking part in this
"We have reported this case to the Provincial
IEC and the Local IEC authorities, because corruption is clearly
rife in this registration process. The number of people in this
voting station has increased dramatically due to this fraud,"
The IFP calls for this registration process to
be cancelled and started again from scratch using the old voters
roll to detect fraudulent registrations.
