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
"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.
