IFP: Youth defiant in push for Magwaza-Msibi to be president

2010-02-15 00:00

A DEFIANT bid by the Inkatha Freedom Party’s youth organisation to have the party’s national chairperson, Zanele KaMagwaza-Msibi, appointed the new party president continued yesterday.

The South African Democratic Students’ Movement (Sadesmo) hosted a prayer meeting in her honour at the DUT Indumiso campus in Imbali.

The meeting was attended by Skhumbuzo Khenyeza, a member of the IFP Youth Brigade who was expelled last year.

The prayer meeting was apparently in defiance of a warning — allegedly issued by the party’s senior leadership — that all the supporters of KaMagwaza-Msibi will be expelled from the party.

Velani Shazi, chairperson of Sadesmo and the convener of the prayer meeting, said they had organised the meeting to pray for Magwaza-Msibi’s continued good health in the hope she will be appointed the party president at the national conference to be held in May.
