The African National Congress (ANC) introduced new members, said to be from the Inkatha Freedom Party (IFP), have been reprimanded for burning the IFP flag and T-shirts at eShowe’s King Dinizulu Stadium in KwaZulu-Natal.
They burnt the items in full view of their provincial and regional leaders, amid approval and applause from the crowds.
The ANC’s Musa Dladla regional chairperson Nonhle Mkhulisi however, reprimanded the group, saying they still need to undergo a six month probation period.
Mkhulisi was among ANC members welcoming about 200 people, allegedly from other political parties in the uThungulu district municipality.
“Even when people are continuously joining theANC but we do want them to do that in respect. We do not support that idea of burning t shirts of other political parties. We want them to just take them off, actually collect them and we bring them back to their organisations but we really do not promote the burning of those T-shirts or other material from the opposition parties,” said Mkhulisi.
