2013-06-05 00:00

THREE new IFP members were sworn in at the KwaZulu-Natal Legislature yesterday.

The three MPLs are Inkosi Mzamo Buthelezi, (party deputy president); Thembeni KaMadlopha-Mthethwa (Women’s Brigade national chairperson); and Nhlanhla Msimango (party NEC member).

They replaced Dr M.J. Mthethwa, Dr Usha Roopanarain and Roman Liptak, who resigned recently.

IFP leader in the Legislature Blessed Gwala said they were happy with the new members.

“It gives the KwaZulu-Natal IFP caucus honour to welcome the three senior leaders of the party into our caucus. They join us at an appropriate moment as the IFP is on a strong come-back campaign to regain its prominent position in the politics of KwaZulu- Natal and South Africa.

“We are more than confident that these leaders will add an important dimension in our parliamentary debates and efforts to enhance our service to the people of the province, and to prepare for the 2014 elections,” Gwala said.
