ANC complains about KZN victimisation

2010-11-23 20:28

Durban - ANC members are being "victimised" for campaigning for the party by IFP-aligned traditional leaders in KwaPhindangene in northern KwaZulu-Natal, the party said on Tuesday.

"The African National Congress (ANC) members, who attended a meeting called by the ANC recently in the area, will be persecuted in court (traditional court)," said ANC provincial secretary, Sihle Zikalala.

Zikalala said ANC members including Makhosini Msibi, the party's regional leader were due to appear before a traditional court on Wednesday morning for campaigning for the ruling party.

He said the ANC was disturbed by the "continuous victimisation" of its members by Inkatha Freedom Party (IFP) leaders in KwaPhindangene.

Bheki Ntuli, an ANC provincial executive committee member and former provincial ANC Youth League chairperson Mxolisi Kaunda, would accompany the ANC members to the court, Zikalala said.

Zikalala said IFP-aligned traditional leaders in the area were unhappy that Msibi was campaigning vigorously for the ANC.

"Msibi was a regional IFP leader and they (IFP leaders) are unhappy that he (is) campaigning for us," he said.

Zikalala called on the IFP to denounce the act.

IFP national organiser Albert Mncwango said his party was not aware that ANC members were being victimised.

"It is bad that the ANC had not notified us about this. I am hearing it for the first time," he said.
