IFP MARCH AGAINST POLITICAL VIOLENCE

March 1, 2005

The IFP in the Zululand District and in the surrounding areas is staging a protest march on Friday 4 March 2005 against the recent spate of killings of IFP leaders in KwaZulu-Natal.

The procession is scheduled to start at 9:00 from the Legislative Assembly complex in Ulundi. The march will proceed towards the offices of the local Regional Commissioner of the SAPS, where a protest memorandum will be handed over to the Regional Commissioner. 

According to its IFP Zululand District organisers, the protest march is an expression of people’s exasperation with continuing political violence, namely the recent assassinations of IFP leaders, in the area and in the province at large.

Senior IFP leaders are expected. The neighbouring communities affected by political violence are welcome to participate in the march.
