ANC not responsible for tensions in KZN, says Zuma

2011-02-17 13:16

The ANC is not responsible for the problems between it and the Inkatha Freedom Party (IFP) in KwaZulu-Natal, President Jacob Zuma said today.

Responding in the National Assembly to points raised during a debate on his State of the Nation address, Zuma said it was necessary for the ANC and the IFP to discuss the issue.

He was responding to IFP leader Mangosuthu Buthelezi, who on Tuesday told the House there was “clear evidence” that ANC leaders were providing political help and massive amounts of money to a campaign aimed at destroying the IFP.

Buthelezi went on to say the ruling party was trying to oust him as IFP head.
