The IFP is not surprised by the move by Mr
Roman Liptak and Dr Usha Roopnarain to join the ANC
since they were not committed IFP members.
“Both these former IFP KZN MPL’s were
squatting in the IFP while building up their pension for their
own interest,” said Honourable Blessed Gwala, Leader of the
Official Opposition in KZN Legislature.
The IFP wonders why Mr Liptak resisted to
attend a hearing when the party tried to engage him on issues
that concerned him and the party, instead he rushed to resign to
the Speaker of the KZN Provincial Legislature.
“ We are aware that the move was part of a
‘grand plan’ by the ANC in painting a gloomy picture of the IFP
before the General Elections in 2014. Both Mr Liptak and Dr
Roopnarain are free to join any other party of their own choice
without criticising the one which has all these years groomed
them and put food on their tables,” said Honourable Gwala.
