The ANC is concerned that the IFP could be using municipal funds for its KwaZulu-Natal party campaigns.

As the official opposition in KZN, the IFP controls several of the province’s municipalities, including Ulundi, Zululand, Nongoma and Nkandla.

ANC provincial spokesperson, Nhlakanipho Ntombela, said the ruling party in KZN had been observing a “disturbing trend” where the IFP appears to be using funds from some of these municipalities to bankroll its campaign.
