The National Freedom Party (NFP) and the African National Congress (ANC) have announced that they have signed a memorandum of understanding.
It entails that NFP members in KwaZulu-Natal will vote for the ANC in the municipal elections.
This comes after branches in at least two municipalities decided to endorse voting for the Democratic Alliance.
The NFP Women’s Movement chairperson, Happy Khuzwayo says the decision was made at a meeting of their national working committee at the weekend.
Khuzwayo says the decision has the blessing of party leader, Zanele Magwaza-Msibi.
“She said she will abide by what the members of the NFP say, because she is not one person to say I want you to go this way, but she listens to the members.”
Here at Uthukela district the NFP members are informed that they will vote with the ANC.
