2012-09-25 00:00

INKATHA Freedom Party (IFP) leader Mangosuthu Buthelezi has lost a claim for damages for alleged defamation against the publishers of Business Day and its editor, Peter Bruce.

Buthelezi also objected to two other statements in the article. One reads, “Now, with just weeks before he faces near certain challenge, Mr Buthelezi is again warning of violence. But this time not against his traditional political foes, but those within the IFP.”
