KZN IFPYB PEC supports suspension of Chairperson

August 8, 2005

The KwaZulu-Natal IFP Youth Brigade Provincial Executive (KZN IFPYB PEC) met on Saturday, 6th August 2005, at the IFP Head Office in Durban to discuss, among other things, the status of its newly elected Chairperson, Mr S' phamandla Ngcobo and unanimously endorsed the suspension of Mr S'phamandla Ngcobo by the IFP's National Council last Sunday.

The Publicity Secretary of the KZN IFPYB PEC, Mr Sboniso M. Khanyile said:

"We in the KZN IFPYB PEC fully recognise the legitimacy of the National Council and without reservation endorse the suspension of both the National Chairperson of the IFP, Dr Ziba Jiyane, as well as the suspension of S' phamandla Ngcobo, pending the outcome of the disciplinary hearing. We strongly believe that all members of the IFP - no matter their position - must be subject to the Constitution of the Party. There is only one IFP. And we are committed to it. There may be a few misguided missiles running around trying to drum up some support for their own short-sighted agenda but it will soon fizzle out."

"The KZN IFPYB PEC further resolved that in the light of the suspension Comrade Siyabonga Mazibuko, current Deputy Chairperson, will act as Chairperson until the matter is resolved by the Disciplinary Committee."
