IFP to Read Riot Act to Its Members

30 April 2013    

  

The IFP has dispatched its National Organiser to read the riot act to party leaders in the Abaqulusi Municipality following allegations of their involvement in bussing people to register in Ward 22 in preparation for the by-election.

  

In a statement released today, after the party's weekly National Executive Committee meeting, IFP Deputy National Spokesperson, Joshua Mazibuko said, "The NEC of our Party was shocked to learn of the allegations which implicated some of our leaders in the Abaqulusi Municipality, who were accused of having been involved in acts of bussing people to register as voters in the Ward 22 by-election which was postponed by court order last week. We wish to register our unequivocal rejection of any such activities. We totally distance the IFP from any such shenanigans as we cannot allow our track record as a party totally committed to clean governance and fair political play, to be tarnished."

 

Mazibuko further added that, "The NEC has consequently resolved to dispatch our National Organiser, Comrade Mfanje Mbango to Abaqulusi to convey to our structures our strongest rejection and intolerance of any such activities.

 

In addition, the NEC resolved that we will allow the legal process to take its course and cooperate with any investigation into this issue."
