IFP: Mncwango’s wife ‘not joining nfp’

2011-03-22 00:00

INKATHA Freedom Party national organiser Albert Mncwango has dismissed as an “early April Fool’s joke” a report that his wife, Nelisiwe Mncwango, has joined the rival National Freedom Party.

“I heard the rumours making the rounds, but I dismiss them as wishful thinking on the part of the NFP.

“It’s false, and it has never happened and it will never happen,” Mncwango said.

Nelisiwe Mncwango, who is the director of community services at the Nongoma Municipality, had corruption charges withdrawn against her late last year.

Mncwango is the former deputy national chairperson of the IFP Women’s Brigade.

She was charged with stealing municipal funds early last year, but the charges were withdrawn before the matter went before court.

A spokesperson for the NFP, Andile Biyela, was not available to comment yesterday.
