GREYTOWN businessman Godfrey Mavundla dropped a bombshell last week when he announced his resignation from the National Freedom Party (NFP) to form a new political party: Abantu Batho Congress (ABC).Mavundla, who is also the former mayor of Greytown, joined the NFP last year and contested the by-election at Ward 7 in August, which saw the NFP snatching the ward with a landslide victory — giving the party a seat in Umvoti Municipality. NFP provincial spokesperson Zandile Myeni said Mavundla was expelled from the party after the organisation read posts on Facebook that said he had joined another political party. “He was expelled from the NFP after we read his posts that he posted on Facebook. “We didn’t receive his letter of resignation as the organisation. So, his intention to leave the organisation is unknown at this stage. “The organisation will continue serving the people of South Africa. “[Mavundla] only spent a year with the NFP [and] we believe that he has a right to choose any political party,” Myeni said.The Gazette reached out to Mavundla for comment but none was received at the time of going to print. A ccording to Gazette sister newspaper The Witness, Mavundla confirmed his resignation from the NFP.
