Street naming: IFP appeals to new ANC leaders

2008-06-24 00:00

The IFP has pinned its hopes on the newly-elected KZN leadership of ANC to overturn eThekwini Municipality’s decision to rename Mangosuthu Highway in Umlazi. The IFP expressed this view in a statement issued yesterday congratulating the new ANC leadership.

IFP provincial secretary Dr Bonginkosi Buthelezi said in particular they also congratulate “the whole KwaZulu-Natal ANC for holding a peaceful conference, which is unlike the unfortunate spectacle that we have seen in recent ANC conferences in other provinces”.

Buthelezi added that they are hopeful that the current leadership of the ANC will place the good of the province above party-political interests by working towards reviving good working relations between the ANC and the IFP.

“ … we are optimistic that, in the interest of peaceful coexistence and progress in the Province, the new ANC leadership will revisit controversial decisions such as the one taken by the ANC-led eThekwini Municipality to rename Mangosuthu Highway [as] Griffiths Mxenge Highway,” he added.
