IFP official denies ‘special leave’ report

Inkatha Freedom Party (IFP) national organiser Albert Mncwango said he had not been sent on leave for a month to save the party costs.

“This information is incorrect. I have never been sent on leave, in fact I am not an employee of the party, I do not feature on its payroll and my leave would therefore not save the party any funds,” said Mncwango.

He said other IFP employees had been sent on leave following a “strenuous” local government election campaign.

He was responding to a report in the Sowetan that all the party’s provincial organisers had been sent on “leave” after a national executive committee decision last Friday, allegedly to cut costs.
