The IFP, which this week dislodged the ANC from power in the Mtutubatuba Municipality, has now sets its sights on the uMkhanyakude District council.

The IFP on Wednesday took control of Mtubatuba, in northern KwaZulu-Natal, after the court had set aside the outcome of a council meeting that elected ANC councillors to the leadership positions.

IFP provincial chairperson, Thamsanqa Ntuli, said the victory meant that the IFP and its coalition partners, which includes the EFF, now have superior numbers in the uMkhanyakude District Municipality. The district is currently under the leadership of the ANC.
