IFP has come under fire for using the Zulu king’s image on its posters.

With election posters becoming a weapon in the battle for the control of KwaZulu-Natal municipalities, the IFP has come under fire for using the King’s image on its posters.

The IFP elections posters, which carry an image of Zulu King, Misuzulu kaZwelithini, have been labelled “divisive” after making their way into social media.

The poster, which was used to promote an campaign event in one of the IFP-controlled municipalities in the province, has since been recalled by the party.
