The IFPYB stands united behind Thulasizwe Buthelezi

July 6, 2005

"Allegations against Mr. Thulasizwe Buthelezi have not made any difference in the Brigade, as suggested by the media and other people who are anti-IFP," the Media and Publicity Secretary of the IFPYB, Miss Linda Hlongwa, said today.

She further confirmed that the National Council meeting tomorrow was not called to address the issue but to look at other matters. Linda confirmed that Mr. Thulasizwe Buthelezi remains the Acting Chairperson of the Brigade and is fully supported by the Brigade until the court settles the matter.

Linda concluded:

"We call for unity and support from all Brigade members to demonstrate our support of Thulasizwe as we allow the course of law to take place.
