The agreement between the ANC and IFP to co-operate in KZN’s hung municipalities has the potential to alienate supporters of the two political parties.

The IFP, which previously stated that it will not enter into a coalition with the ANC in the province’s 21 hung municipalities, on Wednesday announced that it has resolved to enter into a pact with the ANC in the municipalities.

However, some ANC and IFP supporters in the uMgungundlovu District told The Witness that they view the agreement as a “betrayal”.
