IFP organiser Mncwango resigns

2012-01-10 15:32
Johannesburg - The IFP's national organiser Albert Mncwango announced on Tuesday that he was resigning from the position after more than a decade at the request of the party's leadership.

"I have been asked by the leadership to step down... in order to allow the party to implement certain transformational changes," Mncwango said in a statement.

He said he was appointed as the national organiser of the Inkatha Freedom Party by its president Mangosuthu Buthelezi in 1998.

His responsibilities included leading the Zululand District and Nongoma constituency.

"It is, however, regrettable that one did not achieve more," said Mncwango.

The IFP had a difficult year in 2011 with its former chairperson Zanele Magwaza-Msibi leaving the party to form the National Freedom Party.

The party also suffered its worst defeat since 1994 during the local government elections when it lost control of key municipalities in KwaZulu-Natal, a province that was its stronghold.

In March, Mncwango's wife Sanelisiwe defected to the NFP.

Saneliswe reportedly made the move without her husband knowing, but returned to the IFP the next day.

Mncwango defended his wife, saying she neither understood what she was getting herself into, nor the full implications and consequences of her actions.

He said Saneliswe was committed to the IFP.
