Inkatha Freedom Party (IFP) leaderMangosuthu Buthelezi has launched the Sizonqoba campaign in Durban. It’s aimed at encouraging more voters to vote for the party on August 3.
With just a week to the elections, IFP president Mangosuthu Buthelezi says victory is certain. He will spend the remaining week travelling by bus to different parts of the country, appealing for votes.
“We’ve been warmly welcomed wherever we went, now we have just one week left to campaign, our message is simple; get out, and vote, vote for the party you can trust, cote IFP,” says leader Mangosutho Buthelezi.
Buthelezi also sent a plea to police to arrest those responsible for the killing of African National Congress (ANC) candidates in KwaZulu-Natal.
“I am worried about the assassinations because this is happening in many parties. They seem to be increasing but I always say it all arises out of ambition to be candidates and some candidates are complaining even in the IFP that people were imposed by their leaders.”
The IFP’s final rally will be in Ulundi on Sunday.
