IFP mayor axed ahead of key vote

2009-12-11 00:00

THE mayor of Okhahlamba Municipality has been recalled by the Inkatha Freedom Party, the IFP said yesterday.

Party leader Thulasizwe Buthelezi said the IFP has recalled Mayor Vikizitha Mlotshwa to strengthen the party before the 2011 provincial elections.

Buthelezi said the decision was endorsed last week and that processes are under way to finalise when Mlotshwa will vacate the position.

Mlotshwa’s sacking is thought to be one of the methods of targeting those who are supporting party national chairperson Zanele KaMagwaza-Msibi.

KaMagwaza-Msibi has been endorsed by some members of the IFP Youth Brigade to replace party president Mangosuthu Buthelezi at the IFP elective conference in April 2010.

The party has denied the allegations.
