IFP condemns attack

2010-02-01 00:00

THE Inkatha Freedom Party issued a strong statement this weekend, condemning the failed attack on one of its women’s brigade leaders.

Nzuza, eThekwini councillor and national chairwoman of the IFP’s Women’s Brigade, escaped unharmed on Thursday night when three unknown gunmen opened fire outside her uMlazi home.

Mduduzi Nkosi, eThekwini IFP chairman, said that, according to Nzuza, a car that had been spotted driving around the area that night suddenly stopped by her house. Three men got out and started firing shots towards Nzuza’s home, but fortunately her bodyguards intervened.

Her bodyguards opened fire and the men fled. The bodyguards believe that one of the attackers was wounded, which could provide a valuable lead in tracking them down.
