Durban – The National Freedom Party in KwaZulu-Natal says despite concerns over its president's health, Zanele kaMagwaza-Msibi will continue to lead the party until her two-year term ends.

"She will be here until her term of office comes to an end. We say this knowing the situation and condition of our president. [The] president is still our president. Our constitution says she will serve two terms unchallenged and that is how it will stay," KZN provincial chairperson Vikizitha Mlotshwa said on Thursday.

KaMagwaza-Msibi suffered a stroke in 2014. She has since largely kept out of the public eye.

Mlotshwa was speaking at an NFP press briefing on its Sibuyile rally scheduled to be held in KwaDukuza, south of Durban this weekend. He said the rally was meant to be the official launch of the party's vision for the 2019 national elections.

Answering questions on kaMagwaza-Msibi's health, Mlotshwa said SA generally had a leadership problem.

"There is a problem with leadership in all the political parties in the country. It is not just the NFP. We are managing to deal with issues. Look how other parties like the ANC who are failing to fix problems."

Moving forward as a party

Mlotshwa said kaMagwaza-Msibi was aware of all party matters.

"We can safely say she is aware of what is taking place and supporting our programmes for 2019. She is even aware we are meeting today with the media."

Mlotshwa said the party would be looking to its rally in KwaDukuza to outline its future plans and programmes.

"We will give our voters and members a detailed plan of our programme towards realising the vision for 2019."

He said the party intended to move forward and lead a country with "no corruption or crime".

"The sun will be rising upon members of the NFP and the people of KZN and the country. We are reviving, renewing and consolidating party structures toward building a strong formidable, sustainable, proactive and progressive visionary organisation."

Mlotshwa said the party would also meet all obligations including hosting its national elective conference in December and the KZN provincial elective conference in February 2017.
