IFP leader concerned about high levels of unemployment

In celebration of Workers Day on May 1, 2016, the President of the Inkatha Freedom Party (IFP) Prince Mangosuthu Buthelezi addressed a rally in KwaMachi in Harding on the South Coast of KwaZulu-Natal.

Buthelezi says he is concerned about the high levels of unemployment and the state of the country’s economy.

He referred to the protests which have plagued KwaZulu-Natal and the rest of the country, which have seen government facilities and factories burnt. Buthelezi blamed them on the people’s frustration and the lack of economic growth in the country.

“My concern is that of crisis at present, because things are not really the way we would like it to be. I mean economically we have no economic growth, that can actually ensure that there are jobs for young people who are unemployed. More than 8 million young people are not employed in our country.”

The IFP leader urged people to weigh their options carefully before voting on August the 3rd.

He is also expected to present some reasons to support the IFP, when the party launches it’s 2016 elections manifesto. Education is expected to rank high on the agenda.
