IFP conference rescheduled after weekend chaos

2010-06-16 00:00

FOLLOWING the disruption of last weekend’s IFP Zululand elective regional conference, the national executive committee (NEC) of the IFP decided to reschedule the conference to June 26, 2010, at Ulundi.

IFP national spokesperson the Reverend Musa Zondi confirmed that the NEC meeting on Monday discussed the disrupted conference and after deliberations, it was rescheduled to take place on June 26.

“We received reports that the [weekend] meeting was disrupted and decided that it will be re-convened afresh. The same team that presided at the last meeting is still going to be in charge of the coming conference as there were no complaints against them. It was the delegates who were fighting among themselves,” Zondi said.

The weekend IFP conference for the Zululand district was disrupted after factions believed to be linked to IFP national chairperson Zanele Magwaza-Msibi and those supporting Zondi clashed with each other.

It is alleged that this happened after the conference co-ordinator Blessed Gwala declared that staunch Zondi supporter George Dlamini had won the chairmanship of the district against Magwaza-Msibi’s backer and eDumbe Mayor Mpiyakhe Alsine Hlatshwayo, despite the fact that no ballot-system elections had been held.
