IFP REJOICES AT ACQUITTAL OF ALBERT MNCWANGO

May 20, 2005

The IFP's National Spokesperson Rev Musa Zondi said the IFP is overjoyed by the news of the acquittal of Mr Albert Mncwango by the High Court of Appeal in Pietermaritzburg today.

Rev Zondi said, "We are delighted, overjoyed and out of this world at the acquittal of our brother and comrade Albert Mncwango because we always believed that the truth would one day prevail. We knew that the political enemies of Mr Mncwango had contrived to bring these accusations against him in order to punish him. They tried in vain to manipulate the law but we are happy now that all the fabrications have been exposed for what they are."

Rev Zondi also said that it was not only the IFP who was rejoicing but also in particular the Mncwango family which has been under this cloud for far too long. He said that he knew Mr Mncwango was a resilient man because even though his case did a lot to damage his good reputation in the long run that good reputation will be restored as he continues to do his work as a respectable member of society.

He said he wished him well for now and the future.
