KZN Premier Must Heed His Majesty the King's Call
to Stop Abuse of Public Funds

01 October 2014.


The IFP in KwaZulu-Natal calls on the KZN Premier and his Executive to heed the call made by His Majesty, King Goodwill Zwelethini, to review community outreach programmes which waste public funds.


"Over the past weeks the IFP has noted the co-ordinated effort of several provincial departments spending millions of Rands to assist the ANC's by-election campaigns in Mthonjaneni. This is public money, intended for delivery of critical services, and not for campaigning. The IFP will not permit this to continue without it being exposed and challenged," said IFP Leader in the KZN Legislature, Mr Blessed Gwala, MPL.


"This is similar to the "Taking Parliament to the People" jamborees that are obvious distractions that do not provide any sensible or sustainable solutions to the problems that our people are facing on a daily basis. These are just ceremonial visits that do not create jobs or improve the lives of the locals. The plight of the poor will not be alleviated with one solitary meal and a T-shirt courtesy of Parliament," continued Mr Gwala.


"We call on all men and women of integrity throughout South Africa to reject these political shenanigans by the ANC," concluded Mr Gwala.
