Unizul: IFP blames KZN IEC for burnt buildings

2009-11-06 00:00

THE IFP blames the KwaZulu-Natal Independent Electoral Commission for the burning down of some of the buildings at University of Zululand on Tuesday, the party said in a statement.

A mob of students burnt down a dining hall, vandalised a computer laboratory and broke windows of buildings.

Party provincial secretary Dr Bonginkosi Buthelezi said: “Our view is that the KZN IEC must shoulder part of the blame for this shameful act.

“Because, after the IEC decided to debar Sadesmo from contesting the SRC elections on the grounds that Sadesmo had submitted their candidate list after the stipulated time, Sadesmo approached them (IEC) with a legally-sound argument.”

The IEC was not immediately available for comment.
