MEDIA STATEMENT BY THE

STATEMENT ON THE DA/IFP MEETING 
BY MANGOSTHU BUTHELEZI, MP
PRESIDENT OF THE INKATHA FREEDOM PARTY

May 23, 2005

In response in media enquiries, I can confirm that a meeting is scheduled to take place between the IFP and the DA leadership. This meeting is part of our ongoing dialogue which we have maintained over several years.

It is incorrect to speculate that the two parties will be discussing the imbizo which was held last Saturday, as neither party was involved in the imbizo.

I would also wish to clarify that whilst the IFP has maintained a dialogue with all the political parties about the KwaZulu-Natal constitution-drafting process, it is incorrect that the IFP and DA have held or plan to schedule a meeting on this matter.
