The IFP has defied its critics, who often
claim that the IFP's political relevance is confined to KwaZulu
Natal, when it defeated the ANC again in a recent by-election,
winning a ward seat from the ANC in Albert Luthuli (Elukwatini/Carolina) municipality in
Mpumalanga. The ward was previously a stronghold of the ANC.
This is again an unequivocal message from the
electorate that they are no longer going to accept poor
leadership, in the hope that things might get better. They are
demanding change through the ballot box.
It is against this background that the IFP
will host a rally in Mpumalanga tomorrow. The IFP President,
Prince Mangosuthu Buthelezi MP, is set to deliver the keynote
address at midday.
Details of the event are as follows:
Date: 30 June 2013
Venue: Mayflower Stadium, Albert Luthuli
Contact: Mr Mbango, National Organiser on 083
Ms S Ndlovu, IFP Deputy National Organiser on 082
