MEDIA STATEMENT BY THE

STATEMENT BY LINDA HLONGWA - IFPYB PUBLICITY SECRETARY

July 31, 2005

I would like to retract without reservation the statements I made pertaining to the unauthorised SADESMO rally that took place in Umlazi on Saturday 23 July 2005.

I would like to express my regret for attending this event and the confusion that arose in the minds of our members. It is not my view, nor is it the view of the IFP Youth Brigade, on whose behalf I speak, that the IFP is run by a dictator or is an "internal dictatorship", as was stated by Dr Ziba Jiyane.

I would like to express my unequivocal and full support for the democratic leadership of Prince Mangosuthu Buthelezi. In the days and months ahead, I will continue to play my role in the process of renewal and rejuvenation of the IFP which is spearheaded by the President.
