IFP youth to elect leader

2011-03-11 00:00

The IFP Youth Brigade will this weekend hold its elective conference at the eMandleni/Matleng Youth Camp in Ulundi being held from this afternoon until Sunday.

The IFPYB last held elections in 2005, when Thulasizwe Buthelezi was elected national chairperson and Pat Lebenya-Ntanzi as his deputy. Buthelezi was removed from the position after facing a fraud charge and Lebenya-Ntanzi was appointed to act in the position until this weekend’s elective conference.

In an interview with The Witness yesterday, Lebenya-Ntanzi indicated that she will not stand for re-election to any position on the executive this year “as I believe I have played my role and want to give others a chance”.

She said she is confident that the conference will be fruitful “as we are expected to come out with a blueprint to help our party win the local government elections”.

“The conference will not only focus on electing leaders, but will also deliberate our role in the coming local government elections.

“There are many first-time and dejected voters that we want to persuade to vote for our party,” Lebenya-Ntanzi said.
