Johannesburg - The continuation of the killings between Inkatha Freedom Party (IFP) and National Freedom Party (NFP) members will lead to the resurgence of the KwaZulu-Natal violence of the 80s and 90s, NFP leader Zanele Magwaza-Msibi said on Saturday.

"I condemn political violence as we do not want the return of the black on black violence that led to the death of more than 20 000 people," she said.

Magwaza-Msibi was speaking on her capacity as mayor of the Zululand District Municipality at an integrated development plan (IDP) roadshow held in Durban.

At least 1 500 people showed up for the event.

She said the poor turnout was due to the tension and threats between the Inkatha Freedom Party and its breakaway party, the National Freedom Party.

She claimed that some hostel dwellers were prevented from boarding buses to the event.

"Although I am a leader of a political party, this is a government event and supporters of all political parties were welcome as we wanted every Zululand district resident to contribute towards shaping our IDP and budget for the coming financial year,” she said.

Several people have reportedly been killed at the Umlazi and KwaMashu hostels since the tension between the two sides broke out two months ago. King Goodwill Zwelithini has called for an end to the violence.
