The ANC-led government’s stance on the pending dispute over the Zulu throne and the 1988 book by Mzala Nxumalo might have cost the ANC a coalition with the IFP in KwaZulu-Natal.

During Sunday’s press briefing, the IFP said that their national executive committee had resolved that they would not go into a coalition with the ANC unless it attended to some of the issues that have caused tensions between the two parties.

“Where we will be governing as the leading party in KwaZulu-Natal, we will not enter into a coalition with the ANC,” said IFP president Velenkosini Hlabisa.
