INKATHA FREEDOM PARTY


IFP Leader Prince Mangosuthu Buthelezi
 to Visit Durbanville, Western Cape Residents

22 April 2014.

  DURBANVILLE AND THE 2014 ELECTIONS
"HAVE YOUR SAY"

How often do those who claim to represent you seek your opinion or ask for your input? It seems the current dispensation is not taking communities’ concerns into account. Instead, they do exactly as they like.

 

The IFP believes you should be able to "Have your say". Your representatives should come to YOU for constant feedback, gauging whether you are happy with what is being done on your behalf, and listening to your concerns.

 

The IFP in the Western Cape wants to put the power back where it belongs – in your hands.

 

We have seen how your voice was sidelined when the City of Cape Town decided on a new logo. We have witnessed, with deep concern, the withdrawal of the Spatial Development Framework. And we have seen the Provincial Government ignoring its own promises in places like Uitkamp.

 

The IFP champions the preservation of our agriculture and farmlands. We understand that there needs to be development. But when it comes to decimating our heritage, this is a no go zone.

 

The President of the IFP, Prince Mangosuthu Buthelezi MP, would like to discuss these and other issues with you, so that the IFP in the Western Cape can make your voice heard in governance. IFP ward councillors and WC Parliamentarians are not reined in by their caucus. In fact, we give our councillors and Parliamentarians a firm mandate to fight for their communities.

 

We therefore invite residents and concerned citizens of Durbanville to "HAVE YOUR SAY" at a community meeting –

 

DATE : Thursday 24 April 2014

 

TIME : 18:30 – 20:00

 

VENUE : Ruslamere Hotel, Spa and Conference Centre, 14 Langeberg Road, Durbanville

 

Prince Buthelezi will be accompanied by your Member of Parliament, the Hon. Ms Liezl van der Merwe, as well as the IFP’s Premier candidate for the Provincial Legislature of the Western Cape, Mr Len Swimmer, whose many years chairing the Greater Cape Town Civic Alliance brings valuable experience and know-how to the table.

 

The IFP looks forward to putting the power back in your hands!
