IFP: ‘eThekwini expelled themselves’

2010-09-07 00:00

THE eThekwini district of the Inkatha Freedom Party (IFP), which announced its independence from the mother body of the party on Sunday, has automatically expelled its members from the party.

This was disclosed by IFP national organiser Albert Mncwango in an interview with The Witness yesterday, following a declaration of independence by the district at a press conference in Durban.

The announcement followed last week’s decision by the IFP in KZN to expel the chairperson of the Durban North central constituency, Mzonjani Zacchari­a Zulu.

Mncwango told The Witness the IFP is a democratic organisation with the constitution that is binding on all its members.

“People join the IFP at their own free will. Once you take up membership you are bound by the constitution of the party.

“There is nothing like the UDI [universal declaration of independence] within the party. Those individuals have expelled themselves by announcing their UDI,” Mncwango said.
