The Inkatha Freedom Party (IFP) has called on the African National Congress (ANC) leadership in KwaZulu-Natal (KZN) to institute harsh disciplinary measures against Health MEC Nomagugu Simelane and other ANC officials who are allegedly seen in a video partying without wearing masks nor social distancing.
The IFP says it is concerning that this incident occurred at the height of the third wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, with new cases escalating daily in the province.
IFP spokesperson for Health in KZN, Ncamisile Nkwanyana says they want an immediate investigation on these allegations.
“As the IFP, we say the ANC leaders should lead by example. They should walk the talk and show people how we should adhere to the protocols. We want investigations to be conducted. We want to know what this party was about with so many people gathered as if everything is normal yet COVID is still active. It still kills many people,” says IFP spokesperson for Health in KZN, Ncamisile Nkwanyana.
