IFP REMOVES NDWEDWE MAYOR

Durban: February 14, 2005

The IFP's Political Oversight Committee today instructed the IFP Ndwedwe Caucus to remove its Mayor, Mr BJ Shozi from office with immediate effect.

Should he be found innocent the Political Oversight Committee will review this positron. In light of the seriousness of the charges, however, the Political Oversight Committee felt that swift action was necessary.

The IFP calls on all its members, especially those serving in elected office to ensure that they uphold the strict disciplinary code of the IFP at all times.
