The IFP's National Organiser, Mr Albert
Mncwango, today announced that "the IFP had won the
by-election in Ulundi (KZN266, Ward 52606022) in which NADECO's
candidate, Mr Ntuntu Buthelezi was severely trounced. The IFP's
candidate Mr Khoki Jacob Sibiya won the election by 95%."
Mr Mncwango said:
"This is a very important result
because it is a litmus test of NADECO's political future in KZN.
It becomes apparent that while NADECO may be able to steal
positions through floor-crossing NADECO is unable to earn voters
respect and trust with their ballot."
"In fact, this result is a loud
rejection of NADECO because it must be remembered that Ntuntu
Buthelezi previously won this ward as an IFP candidate with a
clear majority. This time round voters have rejected both Ntuntu
and his NADECO."
"We congratulate Mr Sibiya as well as
party structures in Ulundi on this resounding victory and we
have every confidence that they will work to promote development
