The Inkatha Freedom Party will be contesting in the National elections.
The Inkatha Freedom Party (IFP), led by Mangosuthu Buthelezi, draws its support largely from Zulu-speaking South Africans.
As in previous years, the IFP hopes that the President’s State of the Nation address provides a measure of actual leadership which has thus far been lacking.
Political parties across the country took to social media in celebrating Freedom Day which saw South Africa take a different direction in politics.
The African National Congress has urged party members and cadres to contribute to the Solidarity Fund aimed at complementing government’s efforts to fight the COVID-19 pandemic.
With the elections done and dusted, questions have been raised about the IFP president Mangosuthu Buthelezi’s future. But the 90-year-old has no plans to quit.
National Chairperson of the Inkatha Freedom Party (IFP) Youth Brigade Mkhuleko Hlengwa has called on the youth to embrace the IFP 2019 election manifesto.
Buthelezi says young people must be encouraged to exercise their democratic right to participate in the electoral process.
Former President Jacob Zuma, leaders of other political parties including the African National Congress and the Economic Freedom Fighters are among dignitaries attending Inkatha Freedom Party leader iNkosi Mangosuthu Buthelezi’s 90th birthday.
