Election: Mdlalose to vote for DA

2011-05-12 00:00

DR FRANK Mdlalose — former KZN premier, who was once the national chairperson of the Inkatha Freedom Party (IFP) — says he will be voting for the Democratic Alliance (DA) on May 18, 2011.

He said his vote was for the DA’s record of good governance and service delivery. “The DA will put the province back on the track of development which we started on in 1994,” he said in a press statement issued yesterday. Mdlalose, a retired farmer, served as South Africa’s ambassador to Egypt. He endorsed Dr Ziba Jiyane’s Nadeco — a breakaway party from the IFP.

Jiyane went on to form Sadeco which has also since thrown in its lot with the DA. Mdlalose’s daughter is a DA member of the KwaZulu-Natal Provincial Legislature.
