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
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.
