The Inkatha Freedom Party (IFP) has welcomed more than 1 000 new members from the National Freedom Party (NFP) at Escort in the Uthukela district in the KwaZulu-Natal midlands.
IFP leader Mangosuthu Buthelezi urged South Africans to choose their leaders wisely for the upcoming local government elections.
He says since the last elections in 2011 voters have been returning to the IFP.
“Since the Local Government Election in 2011, voters have been calling the IFP back with every by-election. I spend almost every weekend at rallies welcoming people back and welcoming new members to the IFP. We are growing at a rapid pace and already surveys are predicting that the IFP will double its supports in 2016,” says Buthelezi.
Buthelezi called on the youth to register to vote.
