The DA, ANC, and IFP in Msunduzi have been accused of blowing off an important “meet your political party” town hall session on Friday.

The three biggest parties in Msunduzi were the only political organisations that were not present at the event.

The “meet your political parties” question-and-answer session was organised by the Msunduzi Association of Residents, Ratepayers and Civics (Marrc) and was meant to introduce political parties and independent candidates to the residents.
